Summary: Pigmented pleomorphic rods morphologically similar to were isolated from a salt pond near Alicante, Spain. The salt concentration range for growth (10 to 35 %, w/v, total salts) was more moderate than that typical of Twenty-two strains were characterized as members of the genus but were distinguished from currently recognized species by the absence of complex nutrient requirements, a rapid growth rate, nutritional versatility and salt-dependent pigment production. A typical strain (R-4) has been deposited in the Czechoslovak Collection of Microorganisms, no. CCM 3361.
