On page 34, strain number was missing in the description of V. ishigakensis. Corrected description is follows; Description of Vibrio ishigakensis sp. nov Vibrio ishigakensis, (i.shi.gak.en'sis. N.L. masc. adj. ishigakensis, from Ishigaki Island, referring to the first isolation site of these strains in Ishigaki coral reef area, Okinawa, Japan.) Gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, non-motile rods isolated from seawater collected from coral reef near Ishigaki Island. Colonies on ZoBell 2216E agar medium are beige, circular, and smooth and convex with entire edge. Sodium ion is essential for growth. Growth occurs at NaCl concentrations of 1.0–3.0% and pH5–10. No growth observed at NaCl >5.0% or pH >10. The bacterium is a mesophilic and neutrophilic chemoorganotroph which grows at temperatures between 20 and 40 °C with an optimum growth temperature of 30 °C. The bacteria are positive for production of alginase, lipase and DNase, and is able to assimilate D-glucose, D-mannitol, maltose, D-mannose, sucrose, D-galactose, cellobiose, trehalose, D-fructose, N-acetylglucosamine and D-glucosamine. The bacteria are positive for oxidase, catalase. The bacteria show negative for gas production from glucose, indole production, lysine decarboxylase, arginine dihydrolase and ornithine decarboxylase, and is incapable of assimilating D-gluconate, D-sorbitol, melibiose, lactose, D-glucuronate, putrescine, γ-aminobutyrate, pyruvate, L-tyrosine, propionate, meso-erythritol, D-xylose, L-arabinose, DL-malate and citrate. The G + C content of DNA is 47.3–49.1 mol%. The type strain is JCM 19231T = LMG 28703T = C1T.
