Abstract

Three strains of gliding bacteria, 24, 62 and 71, isolated from a marine sponge and algae from the southern coastline of Thailand, were studied using a polyphasic approach to clarify their taxonomic positions. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the three isolates formed a distinct lineage within the family ‘’ of the phylum and were related to members of the genus . The G+C contents of the isolates were in the range 38–39 mol%. The major respiratory quinone was MK-7. The predominant cellular fatty acids were 20 : 46 (arachidonic acid), 16 : 0 and iso-17 : 0. On the basis of morphological, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics, together with DNA–DNA hybridization data and 16S rRNA gene sequences, the isolates represent a novel species of a novel genus, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is 24 (=IAM 15389=TISTR 1719).
