Seventeen strains corresponding to , seven strains corresponding to or received as , and the type strains of and were examined for deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness. Duplicate cultures of the type strains and of some of the field strains, from various sources, were included to make a total of 43 cultures examined. Of the 17 strains, 15 could be included in that species, but 2 constituted a closely related, but separate, species. For this new species we propose the name , with strain F8081 (= NCTC 12113) as the type strain. Only three strains could be included in ; of the four remaining strains, one represented a separate species 32% related to , one corresponded to , and the classification of the other two was unresolved. The type strains of and were distinct from the other cultures studied. The new combination is also proposed.
