Abstract

A total of 34 strains were isolated from saline water in Anmyeondo, Korea. Ten of these strains, considered to belong to novel species, were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. The strains were Gram-negative, moderately halophilic, motile and non-spore-forming rods that contained Q-9 as the predominant ubiquinone and C 7, C and either summed feature 4 (C 7/C iso 2-OH) or C cyclo 8 as the major fatty acids. Phylogenetic analysis, based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing, showed that the ten isolates formed four separate lineages in the genus . Combined phenotypic data and DNA–DNA hybridization data supported the conclusion that they represent four novel species in the genus , for which the names sp. nov. (type strain M12=KCTC 12662=DSM 18042), sp. nov. (type strain M24=KCTC 12663=DSM 18043), sp. nov. (type strain M27=KCTC 12664=DSM 18044) and sp. nov. (type strain M29=KCTC 12665=DSM 18045) are proposed.
