Abstract

Polyphasic analysis of five new isolates originating from the haemolymph of diseased cultured oysters is described. The new isolates were closely related to , having 98 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. phylogenetic analysis, fluorescent amplified-fragment length polymorphism (FAFLP) fingerprinting and DNA–DNA hybridization experiments clearly showed that the new isolates form a tight genomic group that is different from the currently known species. It is proposed to accommodate these isolates in a novel species, sp. nov. (type strain LGP 7=LMG 22240=CIP 108327). Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic features that differentiate from other known species include arginine dihydrolase, utilization and fermentation of various carbon sources, -galactosidase activity, NO production and the presence of the fatty acids 14 : 0 iso and 16 : 0 iso.
