Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, yellow-pigmented, slightly halophilic bacterial strain, SW-109, was isolated from a tidal flat of the Yellow Sea in Korea, and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. This isolate did not produce bacteriochlorophyll and contained ubiquinone-10 as the predominant respiratory lipoquinone and C 7 as the major fatty acid. The DNA G+C content was 60·3 mol%. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain SW-109 is phylogenetically affiliated to the genus of the family . Strain SW-109 exhibited levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the type strains of species of 94·0–96·3 %, making it possible to categorize strain SW-109 as a species that is separate from previously recognized species. On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, SW-109 (=KCTC 12311=JCM 12599) was classified as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
