A Gram stain-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped, motile by gliding and yellow-orange-pigmented bacterium, designated strain 10Alg 115T, was isolated from the red alga Ahnfeltia tobuchiensis. The phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences placed the novel strain within the family Flavobacteriaceae, phylum Bacteroidetes. The nearest neighbor of the new isolate was Aureibaculum marinum KCTC 62204T with sequence similarity of 98.1%. The average nucleotide similarity and digital DNA-DNA hybridization values between the novel strain and Aureibaculum marinum KCTC 62204T were 80% and 22.3%, respectively. The prevalent fatty acids of strain 10Alg 115T were iso-C15:0, iso-C15:1 G, iso-C17:0 3-OH, iso-C16:0 3-OH and C15:0. The polar lipid profile consisted of phosphatidylethanolamine, two unidentified aminolipids and two unidentified lipids. The DNA G + C content of the type strain calculated from the whole-genome sequence was 32.2 mol%. A combination of the genotypic and phenotypic data showed that the algal isolate represents a novel species of the of genus Aureibaculum, for which the name Aureibaculum algae sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 10Alg 115T (= KCTC 62086T = KMM 6764T). © 2022. The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.
