Oceanobacillus timonensis Marseille-P3532T (CSUR P3532, CCUG 70981) and Oceanobacillus senegalensis Marseille-P3587T (CSUR P3587, CCUG 70613), are the type strains of O. timonensis sp. nov. and O. senegalensis sp. nov., respectively. They are moderately halophilic, aerobic, motile and Gram-stain positive bacteria. The strains P3532T and P3587T were isolated from stools with 3.8% and 2.1% sodium chloride (NaCl) of healthy 10 year old female and male 7-year-old children, respectively and living respectively at Dielmo and N’diop two villages in Senegal (West Africa). This study aimed to describe the genome and phenotypic characteristics of O. timonensis Marseille-P3532T and O. senegalensis Marseille-P3587T. The genomes are 4,485,335 bp long for O. timonensis and 4,300,331 bp for O. senegalensis with 38.78% and 36.92% G+C content, respectively. They contain 4306 and 3979 protein-coding and 87 and 273 RNAs genes, respectively.
