A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented bacterium capable of gliding motility, designated strain WPCB118(T), was isolated from fresh water collected from the Woopo wetland (Republic of Korea). Cells were rod-shaped and sometimes filamentous. The major fatty acids were iso-C(15 : 0) 2-OH and/or C(16 : 1)omega7c (45.6 %), C(16 : 1)omega5c (18.5 %), iso-C(15 : 0) (9.5 %) and C(16 : 0) (8.8 %). The predominant menaquinone and polar lipid were MK-7 and phosphatidylethanolamine, respectively. The DNA G+C…

It is proposed that strain BUZ 3(T), isolated from a coastal mud sample from the North Sea, represents a novel genus and species, for which the name Fibrisoma limi gen. nov., sp.
Spirosoma flavum sp. nov., isolated from Arctic tundra soil.
On the basis of its phenotypic and genotypic properties, strain Y4AR-5T should be classified as representing a novel species of the genus Spirosoma, for which the nameSpirosomaflavum sp.
Dongia rigui sp. nov., isolated from freshwater of a large wetland in Korea
The phenotypic characteristics indicate the strain 04SU4-PT can be distinguished from the sole member of the genus Dongia, and represents a novel species, for which the name Dongia rigui is proposed.
Spirosoma aerophilum sp. nov., isolated from an air sample.
It is suggested that strain 5516J-17T represents a novel species within the genus Spirosoma, with the proposed name SpiOSoma aerophilum, from Jeju Island, Republic of Korea.
Spirosoma harenae sp. nov., a Bacterium Isolated from a Sandy Beach
The isolate was isolated from a sandy beach in Jeju Island, South Korea and could be differentiated clearly from recognized Spirosoma species on the basis of several phenotypic, genotypic and chemotaxonomic features.
Spirosoma flavus sp. nov., a novel bacterium from soil of Jeju Island
A novel, Gram-staining negative, yellow pigmented bacterial strain, designated 15J11-2T, was isolated from soil sample on Jeju Island, Republic of Korea and subjected to a taxonomic study using a polyphasic approach, which supported its affiliation to the genus Spirosoma.
Spirosoma luteolum sp. nov. isolated from water
Phenotypic, phylogenetic, and chemotaxonomic properties indicated that isolate 16F6ET represents a novel species within the genus Spirosoma, for which the name SpiOSoma luteolum sp.
Spirosoma daeguensis sp. nov., isolated from beach soil
On the basis of its phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain 15J9-6T represents a novel species of the genus Spirosoma, for which the name SpiOSoma daeguensis sp.
Spirosoma humi sp. nov., Isolated from Soil in South Korea
On the basis of its phenotypic properties, genotypic distinctiveness, and chemotaxonomic features, strain S7-4-1T represents a novel species of the genus Spirosoma, for which the name SpiOSoma humi sp.
Spirosoma taeanense sp. nov., a radiation resistant bacterium isolated from a coastal sand dune.
Based on the phylogenetic, physiological, and chemotaxonomic characteristics, strain TS118T represents a novel species, for which the name Spirosoma taeanense sp.


Nocardiopsis kunsanensis sp. nov., a moderately halophilic actinomycete isolated from a saltern.
Strain HA-9T contained meso-diaminopimelic acid, no diagnostic sugars, hexa- or octa-hydrogenated menaquinones with 10 isoprene units, straight-chain saturated or monounsaturated, and type III phospholipids, which consistently assign the isolate to the genus Nocardiopsis.
Polaribacter gen. nov., with three new species, P. irgensii sp. nov., P. franzmannii sp. nov. and P. filamentus sp. nov., gas vacuolate polar marine bacteria of the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides group and reclassification of 'Flectobacillus glomeratus' as Polaribacter glomeratus comb. nov.
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.
Prosthecomicrobium and Ancalomicrobium: New Prosthecate Freshwater Bacteria
The term prostheca is proposed for the rigid appendages of procaryotic cells bounded by the cell wall, and is defined to include the structures on these new bacteria, as well as the stalks of the caulobacters and thehyphae of the hyphomicrobia.
A phylogenetic analysis of the genus Nocardia with 16S rRNA gene sequences.
The results of isoprenoid quinone analyses provided evidence that nocardiae can be distinguished from all other actinomycete taxa on the basis of their characteristic menaquinone profiles.
Differentiation of Mycobacterium, Nocardia, and related taxa by thin-layer chromatographic analysis of whole-organism methanolysates.
Analysis of whole-organism methanolysates provides a means of distinguishing mycobacteria and other taxa containing mycolic acids and should be applicable in routine clinical laboratories.
Proposed minimal standards for describing new taxa of the family Flavobacteriaceae and emended description of the family.
In this paper minimal standards for the description of new genera and cultivable species in the family Flavobacteriaceae are proposed in accordance with Recommendation 30b of the Bacteriological Code

The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters.
