T. crocina

Tamlana is a genus in the phylum Bacteroidetes (Bacteria).[1] Two species have been described so far: T. agarivorans and T. crocina.[2][3][4]

As all members of the Bacteroidetes they are Gram negative.[3][4][5]'

They are non-flaggelate rod shaped, produced non-diffusible carotenoids (446 nm max abs, giving T. crocina its name) and use MK-6 as the respiratory quinone.

Etymology[edit]

The name Tamlana derives from:

New Latin feminine gender noun Tamlana, named after Tamla, the old name for Jeju Island, referring to the region where the bacterium was isolated.[2]

The specific epithets of the species are
