Abstract

A Gram-negative, motile, facultatively anaerobic rod, designated A36, was isolated from a dead ark clam found on the south coast of Korea. The isolate was catalase- and oxidase-negative. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain A36 was most closely related to KMD 001, with which it shared 98.2 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Strain A36 grew optimally at 30–37 °C, with 1 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 8.0. The major respiratory quinone was ubiquinone-9 (Q-9). The major polar lipids were phosphatidylserine, phosphoethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol. The major fatty acids were summed feature 3 (comprising Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH) and C. The genomic DNA G+C content was 47.3 mol%. DNA–DNA relatedness between the isolate and JCM 15607 was <25±3 %. Strain A36 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is A36 ( = KACC 16204  = JCM 17805). An emended description of the genus is also provided.
