Abstract

Two Gram-negative, chemoheterotrophic, non-motile strains, Mok-1-36 and MAOS-86, were isolated from marine-sediment samples collected from the coasts of Okinawa island and the city of Odawara in Japan, respectively. Phylogenetic studies based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that Mok-1-36 and MAOS-86 were members of the family , clustering with members of the genera and , respectively. Strains Mok-1-36 and MAOS-86 shared pairwise 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of 93.5 and 89.1 % with the type strains of and , respectively. Phylogenetic distinctiveness and phenotypic differences from their phylogenetic neighbours indicated that these strains represent two novel species and genera within the family , for which the names gen. nov., sp. nov. (MAOS-86) and gen. nov., sp. nov. (Mok-1-36) are proposed. The type strain of is MAOS-86 (=NBRC 101622=CIP 109285) and the type strain of is Mok-1-36 (=NBRC 101626=CIP 109286).
