Abstract

Eleven marine luminous isolates, which could not be identified with previously studied species of luminous marine bacteria, were subjected to an extensive characterization. The results indicated that these strains were phenotypically similar, had a G+C content in their DNA of 45 mol%, and differed from all previously characterized luminous species by their inability to ferment sugars. On the basis of these and other properties, the 11 luminous strains were assigned to the genus Alteromonas and given the species designation A hanedai. Strain 281 (ATCC 33224) has been designated as the type strain of this new species.
