Abstract

A Gram-negative, orange-pigmented, aerobic, non-flagellated, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain SM1214, was isolated from Arctic intertidal sand collected from Kongsfjorden, Svalbard. The strain grew at 10–30 °C and with 0.5–5 % (w/v) NaCl. It hydrolysed casein and aesculin but did not reduce nitrate to nitrite. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain SM1214 was affiliated with the genus in the family , exhibiting 96.7 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to the type strain of , the only recognized species of the genus. The major cellular fatty acids of strain SM1214 were iso-C, iso-C 3-OH, iso-C G, C, summed feature 3 (Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH), anteiso-C and C 2-OH. The genomic DNA G+C content of the strain was 35.4 mol%. On the basis of the polyphasic analysis performed in this study, strain SM1214 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SM1214 ( = JCM 30334 = CCTCC AB 2014245).
