Abstract

Two strains of strictly aerobic, moderately halophilic Gram-positive rods were isolated from fermented shrimp paste (‘ka-pi’) produced in Thailand. They produced a red pigment and grew optimally in the presence of 5–30 % NaCl. The diagnostic diamino acid in the cell-wall peptidoglycan was -diaminopimelic acid. The predominant menaquinone was MK-7. The major cellular fatty acid was anteiso-C. Phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol and two unidentified glycolipids were found to be the major polar lipid components. The DNA G+C content was 41.2–41.6 mol%. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses showed that strain PN7-6 was most closely related to KCTC 3911 with 96.5 % sequence similarity. On the basis of phenotypic and molecular properties, the two isolates represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is PN7-6 (=JCM 12580=PCU 259=TISTR 1551).
