Abstract

A study was made of gram-positive nonsporeforming strains isolated from the rumina of sheep fed corn stover with or without different amounts of corn grain. Two groups of xylanolytic, non-cellulolytic strains were found. A total of 13 strains fermented a variety of carbon sources and produced formic, acetic, and lactic acids and ethanol from xylan. The name proposed for this group of strains is . The type strain of this species is strain X3C39 (= ATCC 35992). Three strains utilized only cellobiose and xylan of the carbohydrate energy sources tested and produced formic, acetic, and butyric acids from xylan. The name proposed for this group of strains is ; the type strain is strain X6C58 (= ATCC 35991).
