Abstract

A strictly anaerobic, halophilic, motile, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain HY-45-18, was isolated from a sediment sample of a tidal flat in Korea. The isolate produced butyric acid, propionic acid, glycerol and H as fermentation end products from glucose. Strain HY-45-18 is halophilic as it was unable to grow in the absence of sea salts. A 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis clearly indicated that the tidal flat isolate is a member of cluster I of the order , which contains the type species of , . The closest phylogenetic neighbour of strain HY-45-18 was KCTC 5146 (96.5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Several phenotypic characteristics can be readily used to differentiate the isolate from phylogenetically related clostridia. Therefore, strain HY-45-18 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HY-45-18 (=IMSNU 40129=KCTC 5147=JCM 13194).
