Abstract

Two Gram-negative, rod-shaped, gliding bacterial strains, designated strain LL04 11.1.1 and strain A37.1, were isolated from a diseased sole () and from seawater from a holding tank for turbot (), respectively. The strains grew on solid media as bright yellow colonies with uneven edges; the colonies did not adhere to the agar. The bacteria were able to grow at temperatures in the range 14 to 38 °C and from pH 6.0 to pH 8.0. The DNA G+C contents of strains LL04 11.1.1 and A37.1 were 32.1 and 32.7 mol%, respectively. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strains LL04 11.1.1 and A37.1 were members of the genus in the family . The sequence similarities of the two isolates with respect to the type strains of recognized members of the genus ranged from 94.2 to 99.4 %. DNA–DNA hybridization studies revealed that the strains studied represent two distinct novel species of the genus , for which the names sp. nov. [type strain LL04 11.1.1 (=NCIMB 14278=DSM 18842)] and sp. nov. [type strain A37.1 (=NCIMB 14147=DSM 18841)] are proposed.
