Abstract

Three Gram-negative, small, motile, rod-shaped bacteria were isolated from sp. and sea water in Barcelona, Spain, during 1990 and 1991. They were fermentative, oxidase-positive, sensitive to vibriostatic agent O/129, arginine dihydrolase-positive, lysine and ornithine decarboxylase-negative and grew in the absence of NaCl. They differed from phenotypically related species by their ability to grow at 4 °C and utilize -rhamnose. Cloning of the 16S rRNA gene of the type strain produced two different 16S rRNA gene sequences, which differed by 15 bases (0·99 %); comparison of these sequences with those deposited in GenBank showed close relationships with (97·6 % similarity), (97·9 %), (96·8 %) and (96·8 %), among others. DNA–DNA hybridization levels with the closest phylogenetically related species were <26·4 %. Sufficient evidence is provided to support the identity of the three strains analysed as members of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain LMG 13240 (=CAIM 525=VIB 213).
