Abstract

Strain HG667, isolated from surface seawater collected at the Kesennuma ferry port in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, was found to be a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium comprising irregular short rods and cocci. The diagnostic diamino acid in the cell-wall peptidoglycan was -diaminopimelic acid. The major menaquinone was MK-8(H). Mycolic acids were not detected. The G+C content of the DNA was 70 mol%. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed that the strain represents a novel lineage within the family , order , being associated with the genus . On the basis of morphological, biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties of the strain, together with phylogenetic data relating to the 16S rRNA gene sequence, HG667 represents a novel genus and species in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is HG667 (=MBIC07497 =DSM 18935).
