Abstract 

The partial 16S rRNA gene sequences of six filamentous cyanobacterial strains, Oscillatoria limosa KCTC AG10168, Oscillatoria princeps KCTC AG10153, Oscillatoria sp. KCTC AG10184, Phormidium tenue KCTC AG10158, Phormidium parchydematicum KCTC AG10164, and Lyngbya hieronymusii KCTC AG10199, which were isolated in the late summer at Daecheong Reservoirs, were determined and assigned their phylogenetic and taxonomic position among taxa of order Oscillatoriales. Most taxa of Oscillatoriales whose partial 16S rRNA gene sequences aligned in this study, were very heterogeneously clustered with other taxa. The two strains, Oscillatoria limosa KCTC AG10168 and O. princeps KCTC AG10153, formed a cluster with O. sancta PCC7515, which supported 64% of the bootstrap trees with high similarity (91-96.15%). Strain Oscillatoria sp. KCTC AG10184, that was known to produce a nasty substance, was closely related to the toxic Oscillatoria agardhii group. The study on morphological variation in various environments and toxin production will confirm the taxonomic status of these species. Phormidium tenue KCTC AG10158 and Phormidium parchydematicum KCTC AG10164 made a cluster with other oscillatorian species of Phormidium, Oscillatoria, and Leptolyngbya, which supported 100% of the bootstrap trees with a very high sequence similarity (96.8-99.8%) in this study. The sequence analysis in this study also supported that taxa of oscillatoriales are not monophyletic. Some of the features, such as the presence or absence of sheath and cell shape, which were used to define them, would be inadequate and should be reconfirmed. We suggest that sequences of partial 16S rRNA gene fragments aligned in this study should be more useful than morphological features in the identification and reconfirmation of the taxonomic status of these oscillactorian cyanobacteria.
