A new species, for which we propose the name , was isolated from subgingival plaque from an adult with periodontal disease. The morphological characteristics, differential biochemical characteristics, and protein profiles on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis gels of this organism are described. The guanine-plus-cytosine content of the DNA of is 51 mol%. The levels of DNA-DNA relatedness of the new species to other species, including , and , are less than 30%. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA sequences distinguished the new strain from strains belonging to previously described species. The type strain of is strain G7201.
