Abstract

Bacteria in the family are increasingly recognized to play important roles in the degradation of organic matter during and following algal blooms. A novel heterotrophic, rod-shaped, aerobic, yellow-pigmented and gliding bacterium was isolated from a seawater sample collected in the Bay of Blanes in the north-western Mediterranean Sea. Analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence, retrieved from the whole-genome sequence, showed that the bacterium was closely related to members of the genus within the family , phylum . Phenotypic, genotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses supported the creation of a novel species to accommodate this bacterium, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is MED 217 (=CECT 7118=CCUG 51940).
