Abstract

Two novel species are described on the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic studies. The two strains, designated YM10-847 and YM11-607, were isolated from river sediment and unidentified hydroid, respectively, of a marine lake. The strains were Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacteria with -ornithine as the diagnostic diamino acid of the peptidoglycan. The acyl type of the peptidoglycan was -glycolyl. The major menaquinones were MK-10 and MK-11 for YM10-847, and MK-11 and MK-12 for YM11-607. Mycolic acids were not detected. The DNA G+C content of strains YM10-847 and YM11-607 was 67.8 and 71.6 mol%, respectively. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the two strains belong to the genus DNA–DNA relatedness data showed that YM10-847 and YM11-607 are two novel species of this genus. On the basis of these results, strains YM10-847 and YM11-607 represent two novel species of the genus , for which the names sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed. The type strains are YM10-847 (=MBIC08264=DSM 18905) and YM11-607 (=MBIC07778=DSM 18904), respectively.
