Two strains of a -like bacterium originating from bumble-foot lesions of domestic fowls were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. The phenotypic characteristics of the bacterium were consistent with its assignment to the genus although comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that the organism represents a distinct subline within the genus. Chromosomal DNA-DNA pairing studies confirmed that the unidentified bacterium was genomically distinct and worthy of separate species status. Based on the phenotypic and of the bacterium from poultry, a new species, , is proposed. The type strain of is NCIMB 703055.
