Abstract

A Gram-variable, motile, endospore-forming, slightly halophilic bacterial strain, designated SW-211, was isolated from a tidal flat of the Yellow Sea in Korea, and was characterized taxonomically by using a polyphasic approach. The organism grew optimally at 37 °C and in the presence of 2–3 % NaCl. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain SW-211 forms a distinct phylogenetic lineage within the radiation of the cluster comprising species. Strain SW-211 had cell-wall peptidoglycan based on -diaminopimelic acid. The predominant menaquinone was MK-7 and the major fatty acids were anteiso-C (34·8 %), iso-C (15·6 %), iso-C (12·5 %) and iso-C (10·0 %). The DNA G+C content was 35·2 mol%. Strain SW-211 exhibited levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of <96·2 % with respect to the type strains of recognized species. On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain SW-211 (=KCTC 3898=DSM 16303) was classified in the genus as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
