Antimicrobial resistance in Morganella morganii has been mainly acquired via plasmids and class 1 integrons. We hereby report acquisition of blaGES-5 by a M. morganii isolated in a remote community from the Amazon region. Genomic analysis revealed that blaGES-5 was harbored by a novel class 1 integron designated as In1390.
