In the published version of this article there were errors in the abstract, the first page footnote and the section entitled ‘Description of Kaustia mangrovi sp. nov.’ in the protologue. In the published version of the abstract the explanation of the origin of the genus name Kaustia between parentheses in the last two lines was incorrect. The text between the parentheses should have read as follows: ‘(Kaustia, arbitrary name derived from the abbreviation KAUST for King Abdullah University of Science and Technology; mangrovi, of a mangrove).’ Additionally, the following sentence in the first page footnote included strain name and DNA sequence accession numbers that were incorrect and should have been omitted: ‘The GenBank accession number for the 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain R1DC9T extracted from the genome DNA sequence is MT146883. The whole-genome shotgun sequence project was deposited at DDBJ/ EMBL/GenBank under the following accession identification: CP028923.1.’ In the published version of this article the following errors were present in the ‘Description of Kaustia mangrovi sp. nov.’ in the protologue; a non-type strain, R1DC9 was erroneously annotated as a type strain in the protologue of the type species of the genus, the genome sequence CP028923.1 and the 16S rRNA gene sequence given in the species protologue were incorrect. The descriptions of the genus Kaustia and the type species Kaustia mangrove should have read as follows:.
