Pseudoalteromonas aurantia is an antibacterial-producing marine bacterium commonly found in Mediterranean waters. In 1979, Gauthier and Breittmayer first named it Alteromonas aurantia to include it in the Alteromonas genus[1] that was described seven years earlier, in 1972 by Baumann et al.[2] In 1995, Gauthier et al renamed Alteromonas aurantia to Pseudoalteromonas aurantia to include it in their proposed new genus, Pseudoalteromonas, which they recommended splitting from Alteromonas.[3]
