Enterovibrio baiacu sp. nov. A520

Submitted by Kaufmann, Hannah


Isolate A649(T) (=CBAS 716(T) = CBRVS P1061(T)) obtained from viscera of the healthy pufferfish Sphoeroides spengleri (Family Tetraodontidae, pufferfish). Their cells are Gram-negative, facultative aerobic, motile rods, and 0.5–1.0 μm in diameter. Colonies are circular with whole margin and papillary elevation on Marine Agar and TCBS (Green colony). A649(T) is positive for d-mannitol utilization and indole production based on an in silico phenotype.

Species Enterovibrio baiacui

[ba.ia'cu.i] N.L. gen. n. baiacui, of a blowfish (from Tupi n. baiacu), porcupinefish (any species of fish of the order Tetraodontiformes)
Nomenclatural type
NCBI Assembly: GCF_004120195.1 Ts
Reference Strain
A649 = CBAS 716T = CBRVS P1061T
Their cells are Gram-negative, faculta tive aerobic, motile rods, and 0.5–1.0 µm in diameter after  incubation for 48 h at 28 °C. Growth occurs at 10 to 32 °C  in the presence of 0.5 to 5% NaCl. Optimum growth occurs  after 48 h at 22–28 °C in the presence of 3% NaCl on TSA.  Colonies are circular with whole margin and papillary eleva tion on Marine Agar and TCBS (Green colony).
