Mycoplasma sp. strain G145 (T = type strain) was isolated from a goat's abscessed ankle. Strain G145 required cholesterol or serum for growth and possessed characteristics similar to those of other members of the genus . This strain was serologically distinct from previously described . species and from a group of currently unnamed strains thought to belong to the genus . Strain G145 hydrolyzed arginine, but did not hydrolyze urea or ferment glucose. The guanine-plus-cytosine content of the DNA was 29.6 mol%. We propose that strain G145 (= ATCC 27948) is the type strain of a new species, for which we propose the name .
