We report here the novel species to encompass the isolate A649T (=CBAS 716T = CBRVS P1061T) obtained from viscera of the healthy pufferfish Sphoeroides spengleri (Family Tetraodontidae). Genomic taxonomy analysis demonstrates that the novel strain A649T had < 95% average amino acid identity/average nucleotide identity (AAI/ANI) and < 70% similarity of genome-to-genome distance (GGDH) towards its closest neighbors which places A649T into a new Enterovibrio species (Enterovibrio baiacu sp nov.). In silico phenotyping disclosed several features that may be used to differentiate related Enterovibrio species. The nearly complete genome assembly of strain A649T consisted of 5.4 Mbp and 4826 coding genes.
Strain 33A1-SZDPT was isolated from a small creek located in Puch, Austria. Strain SP-Ram-0.45-NSY-1T was obtained from a small pond located in Schönramer Moor, Germany. 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities between the type strain of Silvanigrella aquatica, currently the only member of the family Silvanigrellaceae, and strains 33A1-SZDPT and SP-Ram-0.45-NSY-1T of 94.1 and 99.1 %, respectively, suggested affiliation of the two strains with this family. Phylogenetic reconstructions with 16S rRNA gene sequences and phylogenomic analyses with amino acid sequences obtained from 103 single-copy genes suggested that the strains represent a new genus and a new species in the case of strain 33A1-SZDPT (=JCM 32978T=DSM 107810T), and a new species within the genus Silvanigrella in the case of strain SP-Ram-0.45-NSY-1T (=JCM 32975T=DSM 107809T). Cells of strain 33A1-SZDPT were motile, pleomorphic, purple-pigmented on agar plates, putatively due to violacein, and showed variable pigmentation in liquid media. They grew chemoorganotrophically and aerobically and tolerated salt concentrations up to 1.2 % NaCl (v/w). The genome size of strain 33A1-SZDPT was 3.4 Mbp and the G+C content was 32.2 mol%. For this new genus and new species, we propose the name Fluviispira multicolorata gen. nov., sp. nov. Cells of strain SP-Ram-0.45-NSY-1T were motile, pleomorphic, red-pigmented and grew chemoorganotrophically and aerobically. They tolerated salt concentrations up to 1.1 % NaCl (v/w). The genome size of strain SP-Ram-0.45-NSY-1T was 3.9 Mbp and the G+C content 29.3 mol%. For the new species within the genus Silvanigrella we propose the name Silvanigrella paludirubra sp. nov.
