A numerical taxonomic study was performed on 52 spp. strains isolated from chill-stored meats. Three clusters were observed: representative strains from these clusters, together with the type strains of previously described species, were examined by performing a cellular fatty acid analysis and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-DNA hybridization. Cluster II contained seven strains, which were assigned to subsp. on the basis of DNA relatedness and biochemical properties. Clusters I (30 strains) and III (15 strains) were shown to represent two new species, for which the names and , respectively, are proposed. The type strains of and are strains NCFB 2775 and NCFB 2776, respectively.
