Phylogenetic analyses were performed for members of the family Chromatiaceae, signature nucleotides deduced and the genus Alishewanella transferred to Chromatiaceae. Phylogenetic analyses were executed for the genera Alishewanella, Arsukibacterium and Rheinheimera and the genus Rheinheimera is proposed to be split, with the creation of the Pararheinheimera gen. nov. Furthermore, the species Rheinheimera longhuensis, is transferred to the genus Alishewanella as Alishewanella longhuensis comb… 

Lonar Impact Crater, India: the Best-Preserved Terrestrial Hypervelocity Impact Crater in a Basaltic Terrain as a Potential Global Geopark

Lonar Impact Crater is a simple meteorite impact crater carved out on the ~ 65 Ma old Deccan tholeiitic flood basalts. The crater, though scoured in a basaltic terrain, is still preserved in its most

Arsukibacterium indicum sp. nov., isolated from deep-sea sediment, and transfer of Rheinheimera tuosuensis and Rheinheimera perlucida to the genus Arsukibacterium as Arsukibacterium tuosuense comb. nov. and Arsukibacterium perlucidum comb. nov.

A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, flagellated and rod-shaped bacterium isolated from a deep-sea sediment sample collected from the Southwest Indian Ocean was considered to represent a novel species within the genus Arsukibacterium, for which the name Arsukebacterium indicum was proposed.

Disparate outer membrane exclusionary properties underlie intrinsic resistance to hydrophobic substances in Pseudomonas spp. isolated from surface waters under triclosan selection

It is suggested that outer membrane exclusion underlies intrinsic resistance to triclosan in some, but not all Pseudomonas spp.

Mitsuaria chitinivorans sp. nov. a potential candidate for bioremediation: emended description of the genera Mitsuaria, Roseateles and Pelomonas

The diagnostic signature nucleotides were identified in the 16S rRNA gene sequences of members of the genera Mitsuaria, Pelomonas and Roseateles, that distinctly differentiate them and support an emendation of thegenera.

Phylogenetic Analyses of the Genus Hymenobacter and Description of Siccationidurans gen. nov., and Parahymenobacter gen. nov

The genus Hymenobacter was emended and proposed a more acceptable genus description and species belonging to Clade1 and Clade3 were transferred to their respective genera.

Alishewanella tabrizica sp. nov., isolated from Qurugol Lake.

It is suggested that strain RCRI4(T) represents a novel species of the genus Alishewsanella, for which the name Alishewanella tabrizica sp.

When should a DDH experiment be mandatory in microbial taxonomy?

Whether or not, and in which situations, this threshold value might be too conservative, is investigated, which means up to half of the currently conducted DDH experiments could safely be omitted without a significant risk for wrongly differentiated species.

Rheinheimera baltica gen. nov., sp. nov., a blue-coloured bacterium isolated from the central Baltic Sea.

A set of taxonomically unique, blue-coloured bacterial isolates are described on the basis of physiological and biochemical characterization, fatty acid profiling and analyses of 16S rDNA sequences, which reveal a clear affiliation with members of the gamma-Proteobacteria.

Rheinheimera aquatica sp. nov., an antimicrobial activity producing bacterium isolated from freshwater culture pond.

On the basis of the phylogenetic and phenotypic data, strain GR5(T) should be classified as representing a novel species, for which the name Rheinheimera aquatica sp.

Rheinheimera perlucida sp. nov., a marine bacterium of the Gammaproteobacteria isolated from surface water of the central Baltic Sea.

A bacterial isolate from the Baltic Sea, BA131(T), was characterized for its physiological and biochemical features, fatty acid profile, G+C content and phylogenetic position based on comparative 16S

Alishewanella jeotgali sp. nov., isolated from traditional fermented food, and emended description of the genus Alishewanella.

Genotypic, physiological and biochemical analyses allowed the differentiation of strain MS1T from type strains of species belonging to the genus Alishewanella to be assigned to a novel species, Alishewsanella jeotgali sp.

Rheinheimera longhuensis sp. nov., isolated from a slightly alkaline lake, and emended description of genus Rheinheimera Brettar et al. 2002.

It is concluded that strain LH2-2(T), isolated from freshwater of Longhu Lake, a slightly alkaline lake in north-east China, represents a novel species of the genus Rheinheimera, for which the name Rhe inheimera longhuensis sp.
