Several cold-adapted strains isolated from a variety of algal-rich Antarctic and Southern Ocean samples formed three distinct groups within the class Flavobacteria, phylogenetically distant from other cultivated species. The first taxon, designated Algoriphagus ratkowskyi gen. nov., sp. nov., was isolated from sea ice and from saline lake cyanobacterial mats and includes non-motile, strictly aerobic, saccharolytic rod-like or serpentine strains that were most closely related to the genus…

TLDR
This is the first taxonomic description of gas vacuolate bacteria in the CFB group and proposes a new genus, Polaribacter, with three new species, polaribacter irgensii strain 23-P, PolarIBacter franzmannii strain 301 and Polaribacteria filamentus strain 215.
