Abstract
    A sponge-associated strain, KMM 7019(T), was investigated in a polyphasic taxonomic study. The bacterium was strictly aerobic, heterotrophic, Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, motile by gliding and oxidase-, catalase-, beta-galactosidase- and alkaline phosphatase-positive. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain KMM 7019(T) is closely related to members of the genus Salegentibacter, namely Salegentibacter holothuriorum, Salegentibacter mishustinae and Salegentibacter salegens (97.7-98% sequence similarities). The DNA-DNA relatedness between the strain studied and Salegentibacter species ranged from 27 to 31%, clearly demonstrating that KMM 7019(T) belongs to a novel species of the genus Salegentibacter, for which the name Salegentibacter agarivorans sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KMM 7019(T) (=KCTC 12560(T) = LMG 23205(T)).
