Abstract

A new saccharolytic species of was isolated from a slurry of rat cecal contents and is described. The single strain isolated often forms cells with two spores. On the basis of several major biochemical characteristics it differs from the only other clostridium species known to form cells with two spores, . The name is proposed. Type strain DS1 is deposited in the National Collection of Industrial Bacteria as strain NCIB 12424.
