A Gram-staining-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain TRM 85114 T , was isolated from Jincaotan wetland in Pamir Plateau, PR China. According to the study, we found it have an ability to degrade 1-naphthylamine. Strain TRM 85114 T grow at 4-35 ℃ (optimum, 30 ℃), pH of 6.0-9.0 (optimum, pH 6.0) and can tolerate 1%-10% (w/v) NaCl (optimum, 3%). Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain TRM 85114 T was affiliated of the genus Halomonas , sharing high sequence similarity (97.3%) with the type strain of Halomonas korlensis XK1 T . The primary cellular fatty acids of strain TRM 85114 T were C 16:0 and C 19:0 cyclo ω 8 c . The predominate respiratory quinone was Q-9. The polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, lyso-phospatidylglycerol, phospholipids of unknown structure containing glucosarmine, and five unidentified lipids. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain TRM 85114 T was 61.6 mol%. Calculated the average nucleotide identities and the digital DNA-DNA hybridization values between strain TRM 85114 T and the related type Halomonas strains further revealed that TRM 85114 T represented a novel species of the genus Halomonas , for which the name Halomonas jincaotanensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is TRM 85114 T (CCTCC AB 2021006 T =LMG 32311 T ).
