Abstract

Three gram-negative, oxidase-positive diplococcal strains were isolated from the oropharynges of healthy monkeys. These three strains closely resembled in their physiological and biochemical characteristics, were more similar to in their cellular fatty acid profiles, and were moderately related to (51.9%) as determined by deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization. An analysis of 11 enzymes indicated clustering closest to , followed by . We propose the name for this new species, and the type strain of this species is strain M-740 (= ATCC 33926).
