Abstract

A Gram-positive, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterium (strain K362) was isolated from a deep-water marine sponge collected off the coast of Curaçao in the Netherlands Antilles. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, strain K362 was shown to belong to the genus , being most closely related to (99.2 %), (98.9 %), (98.8 %), (98.8 %) and (98.8 %). A combination of the substrate utilization patterns, the fatty acid and mycolic acid profiles and the DNA–DNA hybridization results supported the affiliation of strain K362 to the genus and enabled the genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain K362 from the seven recognized species. Strain K362 therefore represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is K362 (=DSM 44990=NRRL B-24467).
