Abstract

A novel heterotrophic, moderately halophilic, strictly aerobic, motile bacterium was isolated from a seawater sample collected at the Blanes Bay Microbial Observatory in the north-western Mediterranean Sea. Analysis of its 16S rRNA gene sequence, retrieved from the whole-genome sequence, showed that this bacterium was most closely related to the single-species genera and (95 and 94 % sequence similarity, respectively) within the class . The data from phenotypic, genotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses supported the creation of a novel species of the genus to accommodate this bacterium, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is MED297 (=CECT 7120 =CCUG 52066).
