Abstract

A yellow-coloured, aerobic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated B-I, was isolated from the water of a shrimp () mariculture pond in Taiwan. No species with a validly published name showed 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of more than 96.5 % to this novel isolate. The highest sequence similarities displayed by strain B-I (93.2–96.1 %) were to members of the genus . The phenotypic properties of this organism were consistent with its classification in the genus . The novel isolate could be distinguished from all species by several phenotypic characteristics. The major fatty acids were iso-C (22 %), summed feature 3 (C 7 and/or iso-C 2-OH; 21.3 %), iso-C 3-OH (12.7 %) and iso-C (8.7 %). The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 35.2 mol%. Hence, genotypic and phenotypic data demonstrate that strain B-I should be classified within a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is B-I (=BCRC 17590=LMG 23706).
