Abstract

An orange-coloured, rod-shaped, non-motile, Gram-reaction-negative, strictly aerobic bacterial strain, designated JC2680, was isolated from a seawater sample of Jeju Island, Korea. The isolate required sea salts for growth. Flexirubin-type pigments were absent. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the test strain belonged to the genus within the family , but shared relatively low levels of similarity (93.6–95.9 %) with the type strains of recognized species. The predominant cellular fatty acids [iso-C 3-OH, iso-C and summed feature 9 (comprising 10-methyl C and/or iso-Cω9) and DNA G+C content (35 mol%) were consistent with the assignment of strain JC2680 to the genus . However, a number of phenotypic characteristics, namely inability to grow under microaerophilic conditions, differences in enzyme reactions, and absence of flexirubin-type pigments and gliding motility, clearly distinguished strain JC2680 from recognized species of the genus . The data presented thus indicate that strain JC2680 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JC2680 ( = KACC 14156  = JCM 17106).
