Abstract

A Gram-negative, pink-coloured, rod-shaped, non-flagellated bacterium, designated CL-GP80, was isolated from a hypertrophic pond located within the campus of Seoul National University, Korea. Analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that strain CL-GP80 belongs to the family and is closely related to ATCC 13125 (95.8 % sequence similarity) and to other members of the genus (90.8–95.3 % similarity). Temperature and pH ranges for growth were 5–33 °C and pH 6–8, respectively. The DNA G+C content was 41.3 mol%. The major fatty acids were iso-C (37.0 %), iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7 (24.5 %), and iso-C 3-OH (11.3 %). Phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses indicated that strain CL-GP80 could be assigned to the genus , but distinguished from recognized species of the genus. Strain CL-GP80 (=KCCM 42272=JCM 13399) is therefore proposed as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
