Abstract

A rod-shaped, yellow and strictly aerobic marine bacterium, designated KYW382, was isolated from seawater collected from the South Sea, Republic of Korea. Cells were Gram-negative and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids were iso-C G, iso-C, iso-C 3-OH, iso-C 3-OH and anteiso-C. The DNA G+C content was 32.4 mol%. A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain KYW382 constituted an evolutionary lineage within the radiation enclosing the members of the genus . The closest neighbour was SMK-12 (96.1 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). A number of phenotypic characteristics distinguished strain KYW382 from the described members of the genus . On the basis of the data presented in this study, strain KYW382 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KYW382 ( = KCTC 23303  = JCM 17455). An emended description of the genus is also given.
