Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid base composition, deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization, lipid, and biochemical studies were performed with NCDO 1258 (S= Snell strain R) and other atypical strains from pigs and chickens in an attempt to clarify their taxonomy. Our results indicate that these strains constitute a new species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is strain NCDO 1258.
