A Gram-negative, non-motile bacterial strain that formed straight rods and straw yellow colonies, designated FCS-5(T), was isolated from a marine sediment from the Arabian Sea. The isolate exhibited most of the phenotypic properties expected for a member of the genus Flavobacterium. The major fatty acids were iso-C(15:0), iso-C(17:0) 3-OH, C(17:1)ω9c and summed feature 3 (comprising iso-C(15:0) 2-OH and/or C(16:1)ω7c). The only isoprenoid quinone was MK-6. The only polyamine was homospermidine and the major polar lipid was phosphatidylethanolamine. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 32.4 mol%. According to 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain FCS-5(T) belonged to the genus Flavobacterium and exhibited 99.3% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with Flavobacterium beibuense F44-8(T) and 90.9-94.6% sequence similarity with other members of the genus Flavobacterium. The results of physiological and biochemical tests allowed the discrimination of the isolate from its phylogenetic relatives. Strain FCS-5(T) is a representative of a novel species of the genus Flavobacterium, for which the name Flavobacterium rakeshii sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is FCS-5(T) ( = MTCC 10967(T) = JCM 17928(T)). An emended description of F. beibuense is also proposed.
