Abstract: Collections of gram positive bacteria from coastal sand dune vegetation, Ipomoea pes-caprae showed a predominance of orange pigmented colonies of Microbacterium arborescens-AGSB. The pigment was identified using a combination of UV/visible spectral data and HPLC retention time as a lycopene type carotenoid pigment with λ max at 468 nms. These bacteria may be accumulating carotenoids as part of their responses to various environmental stresses and thus aiding their survival in this stressed habitat.
