Abstract

Biochemical and chemical studies were performed on some atypical lactobacilli from chicken meat in an attempt to clarify their taxonomy. The present study showed that the majority of the poultry strains could be allocated to the species , and . The majority of the remaining poultry strains fell into two distinct groups which were worthy of separate species status. was found to be a member of the species . On the basis of biochemical, physiological, and chemical criteria, we suggest that , and the two unidentified poultry taxa be classified in a new genus, , as comb. nov., comb. nov., sp. nov., and sp. nov. The type strains of and are NCFB 2766 and NCFB 2765, respectively.
