A novel Gram-negative bacterium, designated 4G11T, was isolated from the sea surface microlayer of a marine inlet. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, the strain showed the closest similarity to Amylibacter ulvae KCTC 32465T (99.0 %). However, DNA-DNA hybridization values showed low DNA relatedness between strain 4G11Tand its close phylogenetic neighbours, Amylibacter marinus NBRC 110140T (8.0±0.4 %) and Amylibacter ulvae KCTC 32465T(52.9±0.9 %). Strain 4G11T had C18: 1, C16: 0and C18: 2as the major fatty acids. The only isoprenoid quinone detected for strain 4G11T was ubiquinone-10. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylcholine, one unidentified polar lipid, one unidentified phospholipid and one unidentified aminolipid. The DNA G+C content of strain 4G11T was 50.0 mol%. Based on phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics and analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence, the novel strain should be assigned to a novel species, for which the name Amylibacter kogurei sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of Amylibacter kogurei is 4G11T(KY463497=KCTC 52506T=NBRC 112428T).
