Vibrio adaptatus is the name given to a Gram-negative species of bacteria first described from the ocean by ZoBell and Upham in 1944. It was later shown to be genetically very different from other species of Vibrio, suggesting it belongs in a different genus. However, it has not been further studied and assigned to a genus, and remains an unclassified bacterial strain within the Alphaproteobacteria.
