Abstract

Three Gram-negative bacterial strains (Cmf 17.2, Rd 20.33 and Cmf 18.22) isolated from reared clams in Galicia were subjected to a taxonomic study, based on genetic and phenotypic characterization. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene allowed the identification of the strains as members of the genus , sharing the highest similarity with CECT 5080 (97.8 %–98.5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Phylogenetic analysis of the sequences showed that the three isolates formed two different groups distantly related to their closest relative, . DNA–DNA hybridizations were performed to confirm the taxonomic position and the results were below the recommended threshold for species delimitation, specifically 44.5 % (Cmf 17.2 with CECT 5080) and 55 % (Cmf 18.22with CECT 5080). Furthermore, the average nucleotide identity (ANIb, ANIm and OrthoANI) and estimated DNA–DNA reassociation values among Cmf 17.2, Cmf 18.22 and CECT 5080 were in all cases below the respective threshold for species differentiation. The estimated G+C content of the genomic DNA was found to be 45.3 % (Cmf 17.2) and 44.6 % (Cmf 18.22). The principal fatty acids of the strains were found to be summed feature 3 (C ω7/Cω6), summed feature 8 (Cω7/Cω6), C, C and C 3-OH. The results obtained on the characterization of the clam isolates indicate that they represent two novel species of the genus , for which the names sp. nov. (type strain Cmf 17.2=CECT 9049=LMG 29243) and sp. nov. (type strain Cmf 18.22=CECT 9050=LMG 29244) are proposed.
