Abstract

A pink, Gram-stain-negative, motile, halotolerant bacterium with subpolar flagellum, designated strain BH87090, was isolated from a saline soil sample collected from the south-west coastal area of South Korea (125° 58′ 58.08″ E 34° 45′ 37.32″ N). The isolate formed opaque pink to red colonies on marine agar plates at 30 °C. The polar lipid profile consisted of diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine and one unidentified phospholipid. The sole respiratory quinone was ubiquinone-10 (Q-10). The major cellular fatty acids were Cω7, C cyclo ω8, C and 11-methyl Cω7. The genomic DNA G+C content was 61.8 mol%. These chemotaxonomic characteristics were all consistent with specific properties of the genus . Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the isolate affiliated to the cluster with members of the genus in the clade, which suggested that the strain belonged to the genus . However, the low 16S rRNA gene similarities (93.5–95.3 %) of strain BH87090 with all the members of the genus indicated that it represented a novel species of the genus . On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic data, strain BH87090 should be classified as a novel species of the genus . The name sp. nov. is proposed, with strain BH87090 ( = DSM 23042 = KCTC 22650) as the type strain.
