Abstract

A mollicutes isolated from a guinea pig vagina was shown to be serologically distinct from previously recognized and species. Colonies isolated from 10 different guinea pigs were cloned and examined in detail. These strains were closely related and had the following properties: Guanine-plus-cytosine content of 36 mol%, no requirement for sterol, and aerobic growth. Glucose was not metabolized, and arginine and urea were not hydrolyzed. Strain GP3 (= NCTC 11727) is the type strain of a new species,
