Abstract

A Gram-negative, slightly halophilic, non-pigmented, strictly aerobic, chemo-organotrophic bacterium was isolated from sea water off the western Mediterranean coast near Valencia (Spain). This strain was able to grow on several organic acids and amino acids added to a minimal medium as carbon sources, but used few carbohydrates or yielded slight growth when sugars were used. Phylogenetic analysis based on an almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that strain XSM19 was a member of the group within the ‘’, with its closest phylogenetic neighbour being (97·6 % sequence similarity). Following a polyphasic approach, it was concluded that strain XSM19 represents a new genus and novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is XSM19 (=CECT 5383=CIP 108400=CCUG 49438). It is also proposed that ( Rüger & Höfle 1992 ) Uchino . 1999 is reclassified as comb. nov.
