Abstract

Three marine strains of the group, designated JC2050, JC2051 and JC2052, were obtained from a single sediment sample of getbol, the Korean tidal flat. Comparative 16S rDNA sequence studies revealed that the test strains were not closely related to any validly published genera and that these strains were only distantly related to the genus (88·7–91·2 %). Phylogenetic analyses demonstrated that the three getbol isolates formed a distinct monophyletic clade within the family . Physiological, biochemical and chemotaxonomic data also indicated that these three getbol isolates differed significantly from members of other genera and were sufficiently different from each other to be recognized as separate species. On the basis of polyphasic evidence, a new genus, gen. nov., is proposed, with three novel species, sp. nov. (type strain JC2050=IMSNU 14012=DSM 15301), sp. nov. (type strain JC2051=IMSNU 14013=DSM 15292) and sp. nov. (type strain JC2052=IMSNU 14014=DSM 15282). is the type species of the genus.
