Abstract

A halophilic -proteobacterium, designated CL-SP19, was isolated from hypersaline water from a solar saltern located in Seosin, Korea. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed an affiliation with the genus . The sequence similarities between CL-SP19 and type strains of the genus ranged from 95·9 to 96·9 %. Cells were straight or slightly curved rods and were motile by means of a single polar flagellum. The major fatty acids were C iso (17·1 %) and C iso (15·2 %). Three fatty acids, C 8 cyclo (3·5 %), C 5 (1·4 %) and C 6 (1·2 %), were found in minor quantities, but uniquely in CL-SP19 among species. The DNA G+C content was 45·0 mol%. On the basis of its physiology, fatty acid composition and 16S rRNA gene sequence, strain CL-SP19 could be assigned to the genus but distinguished from the recognized species of the genus. Strain CL-SP19, therefore, represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with CL-SP19 (=KCTC 12296=JCM 12526) as the type strain.
