A Gram-stain-negative, non-spore-forming, non-motile, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated CAU 1074T, was isolated from marine sediment and its taxonomic position was investigated using a polyphasic approach. Strain CAU 1074T grew optimally at 30 °C and pH 6.5. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain CAU 1074T formed a distinct lineage within the genus Haloferula and was most closely related to Haloferula harenae KCTC 22198T (96.0% similarity). Strain CAU 1074T contained MK-9 as the major isoprenoid quinone, and iso-C14: 0, C16: 1ω9c and C16: 0 as the major fatty acids. The cell wall peptidoglycan contained meso-diaminopimelic acid. The major whole-cell sugars were glucose, xylose, mannose and ribose. The polar lipids were composed of diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, aminoglycolipid and two unidentified phospholipids. The DNA G+C content of the strain was 64.0 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic and chemotaxonomic data, and phylogenetic inference, strain CAU 1074T should be classified as a member of a novel species in the genus Haloferula, for which the name Haloferula chungangensis sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is CAU 1074T (5KCTC 23578T5CCUG 61920T). An emended description of the genus Haloferula is also provided.
