Abstract

A bacterial strain, UST030701-156, was isolated from a marine sponge in the Bahamas. Strain UST030701-156 was orange-pigmented, Gram-negative, rod-shaped with tapered ends, slowly motile by gliding and strictly aerobic. The predominant fatty acids were a15 : 0, i15 : 0, i15 : 0 3-OH, i17 : 0 3-OH, i17 : 19 and summed feature 3, comprising i15 : 0 2-OH and/or 16 : 17. MK-6 was the only respiratory quinone. Flexirubin-type pigments were not produced. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences placed UST030701-156 within a distinct lineage in the family , with 93·3 % sequence similarity to the nearest neighbour, . The DNA G+C content of UST030701-156 was 41·0 mol% and was much higher than that of (33·6 mol%). Strain UST030701-156 can be distinguished from other members of the by means of a number of chemotaxonomic and phenotypic characteristics. It is proposed, therefore, that UST030701-156 represents a novel taxon designated gen. nov., sp. nov. The type strain is UST030701-156 (=NRRL B-41138=JCM 13191). Carbon-source utilization by was re-examined and an emended description is therefore included.
