A taxonomic study was carried out on a novel bacterial strain, designated MIC1008(T), which was isolated from the Gomso salt pan, located in Buan County, Korea. Cells were Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile and moderately halophilic rods, 0.2-0.4 µm wide and 0.7-1.2 µm long. The optimum temperature and pH for growth were 25 °C and pH 6.5-8.5, respectively. Catalase and oxidase activities were positive. Carotenoid pigments were produced. Comparison of 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that…

On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain WDS4A13T represents a novel species within the genus Psychro Flexus, for which the name Psychroflexus saliphilus sp.

Psychroflexus aestuariivivens sp. nov., isolated from a tidal flat.

Differential phenotypic properties, together with phylogenetic distinctiveness, revealed that strain DB-3T is separated from recognized species of the genus Psychroflexus.

Psychroflexus maritimus sp. nov., isolated from coastal sediment

On the basis of phylogenetic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data, it is considered that strain C1T represents a novel species within the genus Psychroflexus, for which, the name Psychro Flexus maritimus sp.

Psychroflexus salis sp. nov. and Psychroflexus planctonicus sp. nov., isolated from a salt lake.

Two Gram-stain-negative, catalase- and oxidase-positive, strictly aerobic, non-motile, moderately halophilic bacteria were isolated from Lake Xiaochaidan, a salt lake in Qaidam basin, Qinghai Province, China and it was concluded that strains X15M-6T and X 15M-8T represent two novel species of the genus Psychroflexus.

Psychroflexus aurantiacus sp. nov., isolated from soil in the Yellow River Delta wetlands.

The combined genotypic and phenotypic data indicate that YR1-1T represents a novel species within the genus Psychro Flexus, for which the name Psychroflexus aurantiacus sp.

The phylogenomic trees reconstructed based on the UBCG and GET_PHYLOMARKERS pipelines all demonstrated that the four strains should belong to the genus Psychroflexus and represent three independent novel species.

Mesohalobacter halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from a marine solar saltern.

The phenotypic and genotypic properties and phylogenetic inference indicated that WDS2C27T could be assigned to a novel species within a novel genus, for which the name Mesohalobacter halotolerans gen. nov., sp.

Pontibacillus sp. ALD_SL1 and Psychroflexus sp. ALD_RP9, two novel moderately halophilic bacteria isolated from sediment and water from the Aldabra Atoll, Seychelles

Both isolates show extensive adaptations to their saline environments yet utilise different mechanisms to ensure survival, including the highest pH tolerance currently recorded for the genus Pontibacillus and Psychroflexus.
