Abstract

A Gram-positive, aerobic bacterium, strain SA6, was isolated from marine sediment taken at a depth of 20 cm on the seashore of Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province, China. Strain SA6 contained -diaminopimelic acid, no diagnostic sugars, type PIII phospholipids, and MK-10(H) and MK-10(H) as the predominant menaquinones. The organism showed a range of chemical and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus . The almost-complete 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain SA6 was aligned with corresponding sequences of representatives of the genus and related taxa by using two tree-making algorithms. Strain SA6 formed a distinct phyletic line within the evolutionary radiation occupied by the genus and was related most closely to the type strain of . Strain SA6 could be distinguished from its nearest phylogenetic relatives in the genus based on DNA–DNA relatedness data and a combination of phenotypic properties. Strain SA6 should therefore be assigned to the genus as a representative of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SA6 ( = CGMCC 4.5723  = JCM 17424).
