sp. nov. is the name proposed for an organism formerly described as strain RMIT 32A (T = type strain) and a group of similar bacteria isolated from intestinal lesions of pigs with proliferative enteritis. The phenotypic characteristics of these organisms indicated that they are closely related to each other and are not strains of other spp. commonly isolated from pigs. The results of probing of I-, RV-, or /II-cleaved genomic DNAs from strains with a radiolabeled DNA probe that distinguishes between and indicated that and are closely related. However, the 16S rRNA sequence of the reference strain of , RMIT 32A, was four bases different from the 16S rRNA sequence of CCUG 11284 and five bases different from the 16S rRNA sequence of subsp. CCUG 24567, suggesting that is more closely related to than to . Hybridization between DNA from type strain RMIT 32A and DNAs from selected type and reference strains of other species and subspecies, including subsp. , and , as well as the other strains (the RMIT 32A-like isolates), revealed that high levels of DNA hybridization (>70%) occurred only between the reference strain and other strains of .
