Abstract

The 16S rRNA gene sequence of some -like bacteria isolated from purulent lesions in pigs was determined. A comparative analysis of the rRNA sequence data revealed that the bacteria are members of the genus but are phylogenetically distinct from On the basis of our findings and the results of previous phenotypic studies it is formally proposed that the bacteria from pigs should be designated a new species, .
