Abstract
    A heterotrophic, aerobic, Gram-negative, pigmented and gliding bacterium, strain KMM 6258T, was isolated from the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus intermedius and investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the closest relatives of the novel strain are Aquimarina muelleri, Stanierella latercula and Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae, members of the family Flavobacteriaceae, with sequence similarities of 96.3, 96.4 and 96.2 %, respectively. Phylogenetic evidence, supported by chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data, assigned strain KMM 6258T to the genus Aquimarina as Aquimarina intermedia sp. nov. (type strain KMM 6258T=DSM 17527T=JCM 13506T=LMG 23204T). The reclassification of Stanierella latercula as Aquimarina latercula comb. nov. and Gaetbulimicrobium brevivitae as Aquimarina brevivitae comb. nov. is proposed.
