Abstract

Strain KMM 3524 was isolated from the holothurian living in the Sea of Japan. The bacterial strain was pigmented, non-motile, Gram-negative, strictly aerobic and oxidase-, catalase- and -galactosidase-positive. From the results of 16S rDNA sequence analysis, strain KMM 3524 was found to be related closely to (98·1 %). DNA–DNA homology between strains KMM 3524 and DSM 5424 was 38 %; this showed clearly that the holothurian isolate KMM 3524 belongs to a novel species of the genus for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with KMM 3524 (=NBRC 100249=LMG 21968) as the type strain.
