Abstract

A Gram-staining-negative, rod-shaped bacterium, strain HMD2169, was isolated from a mesotrophic artificial lake in Korea. Strain HMD2169 grew in the presence of 0–3.0 % (w/v) NaCl, at pH 5–10 and at 20–37 °C. The predominant quinone of strain HMD2169 was ubiquinone (UQ)-8. The major fatty acids were summed feature 3 (comprising Cω7 and/or Cω6), C and summed feature 8 (comprising Cω7 and/or Cω6). The major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, diphosphatidylglycerol, two unidentified aminolipids and two unidentified lipids. The DNA G+C content was 59.8 mol%. A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain HMD2169 was a representative of a lineage within the genus . Strain HMD2169 was closely related to (95.8 % sequence similarity) and (94.6 %). On the basis of the evidence presented in this study, strain HMD2169 is a representative of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed with the type strain HMD2169 ( = KCTC 22839 = CECT 7703).
