Twelve strains (previously designated group II strains by Hinz) from chickens and of uncertain taxonomic position and 29 strains were investigated. The findings indicate the existence of a hitherto unknown species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The main characters which differentiate from are as follows: all of the but none of the strains tested produce catalase, alkaline phosphatase, and a-glucosidase, acidify galactose and trehalose, and do not require serum for optimal growth. Most of the strains produce yellow pigment, grow aerobically, and do not require CO2 for optimal growth. In further contrast to , none of the strains are able to cause infectious coryza of chickens. The type strain of is IPDH 2654 (= ATCC 29546).
