Abstract

An aerobic, Gram-negative, non-motile, yellow-to-orange pigmented and rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain SM1, was isolated from seawater in Thailand and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the novel isolate shared 93–95 % sequence similarity with species of the genus . The DNA–DNA relatedness values of strain SM1 with JCM 7460 and JCM 7458 were below 70 %. The DNA G+C content of strain SM1 was 33.6 mol%, the major menaquinone was MK-6 and the major fatty acids were C iso, C 9 iso and C iso 3-OH. Based on its phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, strain SM1 was classified as representing a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SM1 (=IAM 15337=KCTC 12661).
