Abstract

We describe three new species of the genus which were isolated from human specimens and were tentatively identified as These three organisms were not homologous with previously described type strains of the genus A total of 12 strains that were identified biochemically as were divided into five independent DNA similarity groups; 10 of these strains were divided into three similarity groups which exhibited significant phenotypic differences from previously described species. Therefore, we propose the following new species: for group 1 strains, for group 2 strains, and for group 3 strains. The type strain of is strain GIFU 12669 (= JCM 8138), the type strain of is strain GIFU 7667 (= JCM 8139), and the type strain of is strain GIFU 8586 (= JCM 8140).
