Abstract

A novel aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium, named 13IX/A01/164, was isolated from surface waters in the coastal north-western Mediterranean Sea. Cells were motile, straight rods, 2.5 μm long and 0.2 μm wide, and formed orange colonies on marine agar medium. The G+C content of the genomic DNA of strain 13IX/A01/164 was 42 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence placed the strain in the phylum within the family . On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison and physiological and biochemical characteristics, this isolate represents a novel species of a new genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is 13IX/A01/164 (=DSM 17893=CIP 109092=OOB 256).
