Abstract

Two marine, Gram-negative, aerobic, halophilic strains, designated KMM 3657 and KMM 3840, were isolated and found to be phylogenetically closely related to each other, showing 96·6 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Both strains are members of the genus in the - (94·7–98·0 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Strain KMM 3657 and SM19 were closely related, with 98·0 % sequence similarity. The novel strains shared generic physiological and chemotaxonomic properties with species, but differed in their temperature range for growth, inability to grow in 20 % NaCl and at >43 °C, metabolic properties and fatty acid composition. On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic analysis data, it is proposed that the strains represent two novel species, sp. nov., with the type strain KMM 3840 (=50-11=DSM 15401), and sp. nov., with the type strain KMM 3657 (=R65=DSM 15400).
