Abstract

Taxon 1502 was originally described as a -like bacterium causing exudative septicaemia in ducks and geese. In the present study, an integrated genotypic and phenotypic approach was used to elucidate the phylogenetic affiliation and taxonomic relationships of 12 strains of taxon 1502. Whole-cell protein and fatty acid analyses and an extensive biochemical examination by using conventional tests and several API microtest systems indicated that all isolates formed a homogeneous taxon, which was confirmed by DNA–DNA hybridizations. 16S rDNA sequence analysis of a representative strain (LMG 14382) indicated that this taxon belongs to the phylum and revealed a moderate but distinct relationship to species of the genus (overall 16S rDNA sequence identities were 88·8–90·2 %). Taxon 1502 is concluded to represent a single species that should be allocated to a novel genus, and the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The DNA G+C content of representative strains was 35–36 mol% and the type strain is LMG 14382.
