SUMMARY: A total of 174 moderately halophilic bacteria was isolated from an inland saltern with athalassohaline characteristics, located in La Malá, Granada, Spain. The results of 118 phenotypic tests were submitted to a numerical analysis with ten reference strains using simple matching () and Jaccard () coefficients. Clustering was done by the unweighted pair-group method of association (UPGMA), single linkage and complete linkage analysis. Five phenons were found at the 67% similarity level (). Phenon A included 74 strains assigned to ; 22 bacteria belonging to phenon B were assigned to the genus ; strains of phenon C were assigned to (43 strains) and (7 strains); phenon D resembled (13 strains); phenon E could be related to (9 strains).
