Abstract

Based on genetic, chemotaxonomic and phenotypic characteristics, a novel species belonging to the genus is described. The facultatively anaerobic strain S2757 was isolated from a mussel collected in the Solomon Sea (Solomon Islands). Phylogenetic analyses based on sequences of 16S rRNA and genes indicated affiliation of the strain to a novel species. This observation was supported by a multilocus sequence analysis including sequences of the housekeeping genes 16S rRNA, , , and . DNA–DNA hybridization and average nucleotide identity values comparing the genomic sequence of strain S2757 with those of closely related type strains were lower than 23 and 82 %, respectively. The DNA G+C content of the strain was 45.3 mol%. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic analyses clearly differentiated the strain from other species. Hence, strain S2757 should be considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is S2757 ( = DSM 100497 = LMG 28895).
