Phaeobacter gallaeciensis (Ruiz-Ponte et al. 1998) Martens et al. 2006, comb. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain BS107 = ATCC 700781 = CIP 105210 = DSM 26640 = JCM 21319 = NBRC 16654.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: Y13244.
Basonym: ¤ Roseobacter gallaeciensis Ruiz-Ponte et al. 1998.
Etymology: L. masc. adj. gallaeciensis, pertaining to Gallaecia the roman name for Galicia, the north-west region of Spain.
Reference: MARTENS (T.), HEIDORN (T.), PUKALL (R.), SIMON (M.), TINDALL (B.J.) and BRINKHOFF (T.): Reclassification of Roseobacter gallaeciensis Ruiz-Ponte et al. 1998 as Phaeobacter gallaeciensis gen. nov., comb. nov., description of Phaeobacter inhibens sp. nov., reclassification of Ruegeria algicola (Lafay et al. 1995) Uchino et al. 1999 as Marinovum algicola gen. nov., comb. nov., and emended descriptions of the genera Roseobacter, Ruegeria and Leisingera.

Note: According to Buddruhs et al. (2013), detailed reanalysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain CIP 105210 most likely corresponds to the original Phaeobacter gallaeciensis type strain, BS107T. Phaeobacter strain DSM 17395 exhibits a much closer affiliation to Phaeobacter inhibens DSM 16374T ( = T5T) and should be allocated to this species according to Buddruhs et al. (2013).
Reference: BUDDRUHS, N., PRADELLA, S., GOKER, M., PÄUKER, O., PUKALL, R., SPRÖER, C., SCHUMANN, P., PETERSEN, J. and BRINKHOFF, T. 2013. Molecular and phenotypic analyses reveal the non-identity of the Phaeobacter gallaeciensis type strain deposits CIP 105210T and DSM 17395. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 63, 4340-4349.

Note: DSM accession number DSM 17395 does not correspond to strain BS107; the DSMZ has deposited strain BS107 as DSM 26640 (personal communication from Sabine Gronow, DSMZ).
