Magnetotactic bacteria are widely represented microorganisms that have the ability to synthesize magnetosomes. The magnetotactic cocci of the order Magnetococcales are the most frequently identified, but their classification remains unclear due to the low number of cultivated representatives. This paper reports the analysis of an uncultivated magnetotactic coccus UR-1 collected from the Uda River (in eastern Siberia). Genome analyses of this bacterium and comparison to the available Magnetococcales genomes identified a novel species called "Ca. Magnetaquicoccus inordinatus," and a delineated candidate family "Ca. Magnetaquicoccaceae" within the order Magnetococcales is proposed. We used average amino acid identity values
