Abstract

An aerobic, halotolerant, Gram-negative bacterium was isolated from the sea urchin and subjected to taxonomic characterization. The strain, designated KMM 6042, was rod-shaped, motile and yellow-pigmented. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the strain was most closely related to the type strain of , and the level of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between the two was 99.0 %. However, the DNA–DNA relatedness between the two strains was 34.4±7.6 %. Physiological and chemotaxonomic properties clearly distinguished the novel strain from other species of the genus . It is thus evident from the phylogenetic and phenotypic analyses that strain KMM 6042 merits recognition as a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. (type strain, KMM 6042 = KCTC 12303 = JCM 17037) is proposed.
