A pink pigmented, Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterium (strain 36B243T), was isolated from the spleen of a black rock cod (Notothenia coriiceps, Richardson 1844) in the Chilean Antarctica. Strain 36B243T has a 5.26 Mb chromosome with a DNA G + C content of 35.4 mol%. The draft genome includes the prediction and annotation of 4585 coding genes, and 46 tRNA, 1 tmRNA, and 2735 hypothetical proteins. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence placed strain 36B243T into the genus Pedobacter with high sequence similarity to the type strains of Pedobacter sandarakinus (97.5%) and Pedobacter petrophilus (97.1%). Sequence similarities to type strains of all other current Pedobacter species were below 97.1%. Predominant fatty acids are summed feature 3 (C16:1ω7c and/or C16:1ω6c) and iso-C15:0 followed by iso-C17:0 3-OH and C16:0. The major respiratory quinone was menaquinone MK-7. The polar lipid profile contained the major lipids phosphatidylethanolamine, five unidentified aminolipids, two lipids lacking a functional group and two minor glycolipids and one lipid lacking a functional group. An alkali-stable lipid was present. The polyamine pattern contained the predominant compound sym-homospermidine. Characterization by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, physiological parameters, pigment analysis, ubiquinone, polar lipid, and fatty acid composition revealed that strain 36B243T represents a new species of the genus Pedobacter. For this reason, we propose the name Pedobacter nototheniae sp. nov. with the type strain 36B243T (= LMG 30634T = CCM 8855T = CIP 111622T).
