Abstract

Of 30 strains isolated from infections in dogs, 15 were found to have galactose, glucose, and rhamnose in their cell wall carbohydrates, whereas the remainder had only galactose and glucose. No 6-deoxytalose was detected in any of our analyses. The biochemical characteristics of the rhamnose-positive strains deficient in 6-deoxytalose were similar to those of ATCC 19246 and ATCC 27045, a reference dog strain. In contrast, the 15 strains having only galactose and glucose in their wall carbohydrates had biochemical and serological characteristics unlike those of any previously accepted species of . The name sp. nov. is proposed for this organism which is associated with thoracic, abdominal, or recurrent localized infections that sometimes are associated with awns of foxtails ( spp). The type strain of is strain ATCC 35275 (= UCD 81-332-9).
