Abstract

A Gram-negative, aerobic, halophilic bacterium, designated strain JC2041, was isolated from a sediment sample of getbol, the Korean tidal flat. Results of 16S rDNA sequence analyses indicated a moderate relationship to within the - (94·9 % similarity). Depending on the tree-making algorithm used, the isolate either formed a monophyletic clade with or was recovered as a sister group of a class containing the genera and . Phenotypic features of the getbol isolate were similar to those of , but several physiological and chemotaxonomic properties, including nitrate reduction, amylase, lecithinase, Tweenase and utilization of 13 carbon sources, distinguished strain JC2041 from . The polyphasic data presented in this study indicate that the isolate should be classified as a novel species in the genus . The name sp. nov. is therefore proposed for the getbol isolate; the type strain is JC2041 (=IMSNU 14005=KCTC 12041=DSM 15355).
