Vibrio adaptatus

Vibrio adaptatus is the name given to a Gram-negative species of bacteria first described from the ocean by ZoBell and Upham in 1944.[1] It was later shown to be genetically very different from other species of Vibrio (which belongs to Gammaproteobacteria), suggesting it belongs in a different genus,[2] However, it has not been further studied and assigned to a genus, and remains an unclassified bacterial strain within the Alphaproteobacteria,[3] just like Vibrio cyclosites.[4][5]
