Abstract

A pink-coloured bacterial strain, 5516J-15, was isolated from an air sample from Jeju Island, Republic of Korea. The organism was found to have resistance to UV radiation typical of members of the genus , and it was placed within the radiation of the on a phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences. Strain 5516J-15 shared low 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (84.5–87.8 %) with species, showing highest sequence similarity to VCD115 (87.8 %) and Wt/1a (87.8 %). Strain 5516J-15 had type A3 peptidoglycan with -ornithine, menaquinone 8 (MK-8) as the major quinone and iso-C, anteiso-C, iso-C and C as the major fatty acids. Its polar lipid profile contained three unknown aminophospholipids, two unknown polar lipids, one unknown phospholipid and one unknown glycolipid. The DNA G+C content of strain 5516J-15 was 61.3 mol%. Based on the phylogenetic and phenotypic data presented, it is proposed that the unknown strain should be classified within a novel species in the genus with the name sp. nov. The type strain is 5516J-15 (=KACC 11606 =DSM 18568).
