Two Gram-staining-negative bacterial strains, designated 3A10T and ECP37T, were isolated fromsediment samples collected from an industrially contaminated site in northern Portugal. These twoorganisms were rod-shaped, non-motile, aerobic, catalase- and oxidase-positive and formedyellow colonies. The predominant fatty acids were iso-C15 : 0, anteiso-C15 : 0, iso-C17 : 1v9c andiso-C17 : 0 3-OH. The G+C content of the DNA of strains 3A10T and ECP37T was 43 and34 mol%, respectively. The major isoprenoid quinone of the two strains was MK-6. 16S rRNAgene sequence analysis revealed that strains 3A10T and ECP37T were members of the familyFlavobacteriaceae and were related phylogenetically to the genus Chryseobacterium. Strain3A10T showed 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 97.2 and 96.6 % to the type strainsof Chryseobacterium antarcticum and Chryseobacterium jeonii, respectively; strain ECP37Tshowed 97.3 % similarity to the type strain of Chryseobacterium marinum. DNA–DNAhybridization experiments revealed levels of genomic relatedness of ,70 % between strains3A10T and ECP37T and between these two strains and the type strains of C. marinum, C. antarcticum and C. jeonii, justifying their classification as representing two novel species of thegenus Chryseobacterium. The names proposed for these organisms are Chryseobacteriumpalustre sp. nov. (type strain 3A10T 5LMG 24685T 5NBRC 104928T) and Chryseobacteriumhumi sp. nov. (type strain ECP37T 5LMG 24684T 5NBRC 104927T).
