Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-flagellated, non-spore-forming bacterium, designated YCS-6, that was motile by gliding, was isolated from seawater on the southern coast of Korea. Strain YCS-6 grew optimally at 30 °C and with 2 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain YCS-6 fell within the genus and was most closely associated with B-I, with which the isolate exhibited 95.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Sequence similarity between strain YCS-6 and other members of the genus was 93.8–95.7 %. Strain YCS-6 contained menaquinone-6 (MK-6) as the predominant respiratory quinone and iso-C, summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or Cω7), iso-C 3-OH and iso-C G as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 32.7 mol%. Differential phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness distinguished strain YCS-6 from all other members of the genus . On the basis of our phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain YCS-6 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YCS-6 ( = KCTC 23423  = CCUG 60527).
