Abstract

We describe a new group (type 3) of the recently proposed species isolated from eight patients with AIDS in London, England. Sequences of genes coding for 16S rRNA (EMBL accession no. Z46664) showed a divergence of 17 bases from type 2 reference isolates and a divergence of 7 bases from type 1 reference isolates. A reference strain is available (NCTC 12882).
