Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid base composition, deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization, and biochemical studies were performed on some problematic enterococci of unknown taxonomic position. Our results indicate that some motile, nonpigmented strains are members of , whereas motile, yellow-pigmented strains belong to Four nonmotile, yellow-pigmented strains were biochemically and genetically distinct from all previously described species and constitute a new species, for which the name is proposed. The type strain of is strain NCDO 2375.
