16S rRNA gene sequence of the strain number 7a clearly indicated that the strain belonged to the family Bacillaceae most closely related to Bacilli sp.
Strains Pelagirhabdus alkalitolerans S5, Salibacterium halotolerans S7 and Salipaludibacillus aurantiacus S9 were three novel recently described members representing novel genus from the family Bacillaceae. These strains were Gram-stain-positive, rod shaped, non-motile and non-endospore forming, except Salipaludibacillus aurantiacus S9 (Sultanpuram et al., 2016; Sultanpuram et al., 2015d; Sultanpuram and Mothe 2016).
