Abstract

The partial 16S rRNA gene sequences of representative strains of two groups of anaerobic, gram-negative, pigmented, asaccharolytic, rod-shaped bacteria isolated from subgingival plaque of dogs with naturally occurring periodontal disease were determined. A comparative analysis of the rRNA sequence data revealed that the two groups of organisms represent previously unknown lines of descent within the genus . On the basis of our phylogenetic findings and the phenotypic distinctiveness of the organisms, two new species, and , are proposed.
