Abstract

A novel gliding marine bacterium (strain 59SA) was isolated from marine barnacle debris. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the isolate formed a distinct lineage within the genus in the family ‘’. The DNA GC content of strain 59SA was 38.7 mol%, the major respiratory quinone was MK-7 and the predominant cellular fatty acids were 20 : 46 and 16 : 0. On the basis of the data from DNA–DNA hybridization, physiological and chemotaxonomic analyses and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons, strain 59SA represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 59SA (=IAM 15439=TISTR 1726).
