Abstract

Two strains isolated from a sample of activated sludge that was obtained from a seawater-based wastewater treatment plant on the southeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain have been characterized to achieve their taxonomic classification, since preliminary data suggested they could represent novel taxa. Given the uniqueness of this habitat, as this sort of plants are rare in the world and this one used seawater to process an influent containing intermediate products from amoxicillin synthesis, we also explored their ecology and the annotations of their genomic sequences. Analysis of their 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that one of them, which was orange-pigmented, was distantly related to (family ) and to other representatives of neighbouring families in the order (class ) by 88–89 % similarities; while the other strain, which was yellow-pigmented, was a putative new species of (family , order , class ) with as closest relative (97.3 % 16S rRNA sequence similarity to its type strain). Following a polyphasic taxonomic approach, including a genome-based phylogenetic analysis and a thorough phenotypic characterization, we propose the following novel taxa: gen. nov., sp. nov. (whose type strain is AS29M-1=CECT 30217=LMG 32344), fam. nov. (whose type genus is ), and sp. nov. (whose type strain is AS29M=CECT 30171=LMG 32343).
