An orange-pigmented, oxidase-positive bacterial strain (I-41R45T), isolated from the kidney of a black rock cod fish sampled in the Chilean Antarctic was studied in a polyphasic taxonomic investigation. Cells of the isolate were coccoid and stained Gram-negative. A comparison of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain I-41R45T with sequences of type strains of most closely related Paracoccus species showed highest sequence similarities to Paracoccus hibiscisoli (98.4 %), Paracoccus marcusii (98.3 %), Paracoccus haeundaensis and Paracoccus carotinifaciens (both 98.2 %). 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities to all other Paracoccus species were below 97 %. The draft genome of strain I-41R45T had a size of 4.59 Mb with a DNA G+C content of 65.26 mol% and included the prediction and annotation of 4426 coding genes, 1973 protein-coding genes and 46 tRNAs. The fatty acid profile of strain I-41R45T consisted mainly of the major fatty acids C18 : 1ω7c/ω9t/ω12t and C18:0, typical of the genus Paracoccus. DNA-DNA hybridizations between I-41R45T and type strains of P. hibiscisoli, P. marcusiiand P. haeundaensis resulted in similarity values of 45 % (reciprocal 26 %), 66 % (reciprocal 61 %), and 29 % (reciprocal 36 %), respectively. DNA-DNA hybridization results, together with the differentiating biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties, showed that strain I-41R45T represents a novel Paracoccus species, for which the name Paracoccus nototheniae sp. nov. (type strain I-41R45T=CCM 8875T=CIP 111632T), is proposed.
