Abstract

Abstract

The taxonomy of an apparently genetically distinct gas-producing group of strains formerly classified as was studied. Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis analysis confirmed the distinctiveness of the unknown taxon. Low DNA relatedness values also demonstrated that the unknown was not closely related genetically to any of the presently recognized species that have guanine-plus-cytosine values of 45 to 47 mol% or produce gas by fermentation of sugars. The unknown group was also a phenotypically distinct taxon. The data suggest that the unknown group merits recognition as a new species, for which the name is proposed.
