Strains 2674T (=LMG 21259T =JCM 11435T) and 2693T (=LMG 21258T =JCM 11436T) were isolated from Atlantic sediments at a temperature of 2 degrees C and a depth of 2815 m off the West African coast. Polyphasic evidence indicates that the two strains belong to the genus Moritella and represent distinct species, for which the names Moritella profunda sp. nov. (for strain 2674T) and Moritella abyssi sp. nov. (for strain 2693T) are proposed. The moderate piezophily of the two organisms is intermediate… CONTINUE READING
