- A total of 14 Halomonas strains were isolated from the blood of two patients and from dialysis machines of a renal care centre. The strains were Gram-negative, halophilic, motile and non-spore-forming rods. They produced cream-coloured colonies and contained Q-9 as the predominant ubiquinone and C18:1ω7c and C16:0 as the major fatty acids. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that the 14 isolates were most closely related to Halomonas magadiensis 21 MIT with 98.1-98.9% sequence similarity and that they formed three separate lineages among themselves. Combined phenotypic and DNA-DNA hybridization data support the conclusion that they represent three novel species of the genus Halomonas, for which the names Halomonas stevensii sp. nov. (type strain S18214T=KCTC 22148T=DSM 21198T), Halomonas hamiltonii sp. nov. (type strain W1025T=KCTC 22154T=DSM 21196T) and Halomonas johnsoniae sp. nov. (type strain T68687T=KCTC 22157T=DSM 21197T) are proposed.
