Marinobacter bryozoorum sp. nov. and Marinobacter sediminum sp. nov., novel bacteria from the marine environment.
It is proposed that the strains represent two novel species that shared generic physiological and chemotaxonomic properties with Marinobacter species, but differed in their temperature range for growth, inability to grow in 20 % NaCl and at >43 degrees C, metabolic properties and fatty acid composition.

Oceanisphaera litoralis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel halophilic bacterium from marine bottom sediments.
A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed to characterize a new bacterial isolate, designated KMM 3654(T), from a marine bottom sand sample, which shared some physiological and chemotaxonomic properties with two Oceanimonas species, but differed from them in morphology, growth at 4 degrees C, urease activity, weak phenol degradation and utilization of phenylacetate. Expand
Glaciecola mesophila sp. nov., a novel marine agar-digesting bacterium.
The novel strains shared several phenotypic and physiological properties with members of Glaciecola, but they differed in their lack of pigment production, their minimal and maximal growth temperatures and their ability to hydrolyse agar and carrageenan and in the utilization of organic compounds. Expand
Lysobacter spongiicola sp. nov., isolated from a deep-sea sponge.
On the basis of the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, DNA-DNA hybridization and phylogenetic data, strain KMM 329(T) represents a novel species of the genus Ly sobacter, for which the name Lysobacter spongiicola sp. Expand
Reinekea marinisedimentorum gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel gammaproteobacterium from marine coastal sediments.
Together phylogenetic and physiological data show that the new marine sediment isolate, KMM 3655(T), represents a novel genus and species, for which the name Reinekea marinisedimentorum gen. nov., sp. Expand
Rheinheimera pacifica sp. nov., a novel halotolerant bacterium isolated from deep sea water of the Pacific.
The deep-sea isolate exhibited growth in 0-8 % NaCl and at 4-37 degrees C, hydrolytic activity on gelatin, Tween 80 and starch and lack of D-glucose utilization, and was related closely to Rheinheimera baltica DSM 14885(T) within the gamma-Proteobacteria. Expand
Aestuariibacter litoralis sp. nov., isolated from a sandy sediment of the Sea of Japan.
The phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics of an aerobic, Gram-negative, motile, non-pigmented Alteromonas-like bacterium isolated from a sandy sediment sample collected offshore of the Sea of Japan, were investigated and it was revealed that strain KMM 3894(T) belonged to the genus Aestuariibacter and was most closely related to Aestus halophilus JC2043(T). Expand
Kangiella japonica sp. nov., isolated from a marine environment.
Three Gram-negative, aerobic, halophilic, non-motile, yellowish-pigmented bacteria isolated from coastal seawater and sediment samples of the Sea of Japan, Russia were shown to belong to the same species on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities and DNA-DNA relatedness. Expand
Psychrobacter submarinus sp. nov. and Psychrobacter marincola sp. nov., psychrophilic halophiles from marine environments.
Two novel psychrophilic, halophilic, Psychrobacter-like bacteria, strains KMM 225T and KMM 277T, were isolated from sea water and the internal tissues of an ascidian Polysyncraton sp. specimen,Expand
