Abstract

A new subspecies, subsp. , was isolated from human skin and is described on the basis of studies of 15 to 26 strains. DNA-DNA reassociation reactions demonstrated that these strains were closely related to but were significantly divergent. The strains of subsp. can be distinguished from by their positive urease activity, their ability to produce acid from maltose under aerobic conditions, their fatty acid profile, and their colony morphology. The type strain of the new subspecies is strain ATCC 49326.
