Abstract

Five alginolytic, facultatively anaerobic, non-motile bacteria were isolated from the gut of abalones and . Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rDNA data indicated that these strains are related closely to (98 % 16S rDNA sequence similarity). DNA–DNA hybridization and fluorescent amplified fragment length polymorphism fingerprinting demonstrated that the five strains constituted a single species that was different from all currently known vibrios. The name sp. nov. (type strain, LMG 21323=IAM 15009=G3-29; DNA G+C content, 48·0–48·9 mol%) is proposed to encompass this novel taxon. Several phenotypic features were disclosed that discriminate from other species: sp. nov. and can be differentiated on the basis of 17 traits (indole production, -galactosidase test and assimilation of 15 carbon compounds).
