Abstract

Two Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, motile by a single polar flagellum and rod-shaped strains, designated SCS-49 and SCS-111, were isolated from seawater of the South China Sea. The two strains grew at 4–35 °C, with 0.5–7.5 % (w/v) NaCl and at pH 6.5–9.0 and were able to reduce nitrate. Q-8 was the sole ubiquinone. The major fatty acids of the two strains were C, C 7 and summed feature 3 (C 7 and/or C 6). The polar lipids included diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, phospoglycolipid, three unidentified glycolipids, five unidentified phospholipids and two to three unidentified lipids. The isolates formed a stable clade with and based on phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences. Strains SCS-49 and SCS-111 exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 97.2 and 96.0 % with respect to the type strains of and , respectively. The average nucleotide diversity and DNA–DNA hybridization values between strain SCS-49 and KCTC 42131 were 71.4 and 25.1 %, respectively and the values between strain SCS-49 and SCS-111 were 99.9 and 99.2 %, respectively. Based upon the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genetic data, strains SCS-49 and SCS-111 represent a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SCS-49 (=CGMCC 1.15425=KCTC 52155=MCCC 1K03186).
