We propose a new species, . Each of the 12 strains placed in this new species was examined for 129 characteristics, including reactions in 58 enzyme tests (API ZYM System). These bacteria are rod shaped, aerobic, gram negative, and nonmotile and attack carbohydrates oxidatively. The mean guanine-plus-cytosine content of the deoxyribonucleic acids of six representative strains is 37.6 ± 1.0 mol%. Most strains of the new species were isolated from human clinical specimens; vaginal specimens were a common source. One of the strains included in the new species (strain NCTC 10795) is a reference strain of the unnamed taxon species group IIb. The type strain is strain F93 (= NCTC 11432).
