Abstract

A novel species, strain P2S11, was isolated from the mucus of a puffer fish caught off the coast of Kaneohe Bay, O'ahu, Hawai'i. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the novel strain was most closely related to DSM 16917 and DSM 9799 with 93.5 % and 82.9 % sequence similarities, respectively, which established the novel strain as belonging to the genus . The strain formed off-white coloured colonies on marine agar and cells were Gram-negative, non-motile rods. HS was produced when strain P2S11 was grown on TSI medium with added salt. Strain P2S11 had a DNA G+C content of 54.9 mol% and the dominant fatty acids were C 9, C and C 8. On the basis of this polyphasic study, strain P2S11 (=ATCC BAA-1480=DSM 18821) represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
