Abstract

An analysis of 23 strains in which we used multilocus enzyme electrophoresis at 18 enzyme loci showed that this bacterial species could be divided into two main genomic groups. The results of DNA-DNA hybridizations and rRNA gene restriction patterns confirmed this finding. The DNA homology data suggested that the two genomic groups represent two subspecies, subsp. and subsp. subsp. nov. The two subspecies can be distinguished biochemically on the basis of the ability to ferment ribose and -acetyl-β--mannosamine. The type strain of subsp. is strain CLIP 12229 (=CIP 103466).
