Abstract

Chemotaxonomic and genomic 16S ribosomal DNA sequence analyses of two isolates obtained from two different clinical materials clearly delineated a new species of the genus . This new species can be identified by its 16S ribosomal DNA similarity values, as well as its physiological characteristics. The name sp. nov. is proposed for these isolates, which are represented by strain IMMIB D-771 (= DSM 44067) (T = type strain). This strain exhibits only 45% DNA relatedness to
