The name subsp. subsp. nov. is proposed for a commonly isolated from normal or inflamed gastric mucosa of ferrets. subsp. , like , has multiple sheathed flagella, rapidly hydrolyzes urea, is HS negative on triple sugar iron agar, and has a variable reaction on lead acetate strips. It does not grow in the presence of 3% NaCl, and growth is variable in 0.04% triphenyltetrazolium chloride and 1% glycine. Unlike , this organism reduces nitrate, is susceptible to nalidixic acid, and is resistant to cephalothin. Three strains of subsp. were highly related (≥86%) as determined by deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-DNA hybridization (hydroxyapatite method, 50 and 65°C). subsp. was ≥85% related to , whereas the level of relatedness with another seven isolates was ≤2% at 65°C. The type strain of subsp. is strain R85-13-6 (= ATCC 43772), and its DNA has a guanine-plus-cytosine content of 38 mol%.
