A yellow-pigmented bacterium was isolated from blood of a 3-year-old boy in Göteborg, Sweden. Comparative analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that this bacterium is most closely related to LJ96 and R2A16-10, with sequence similarity of 98.3 % to both. Strain CCUG 25036 is clearly different from CCUG 50033 and also from DSM 17673 in that DNA–DNA hybridization revealed relatedness of 33.7 and 29.8 %, respectively. Strain CCUG 25036 is further distinguished from CCUG 50033 and DSM 17673 by being able to use -mannose, -mannitol and gluconate as sole carbon sources and by lacking the ability to use maltose or sucrose as sole carbon sources. The name sp. nov. is proposed for this novel species, with the type strain CCUG 25036 (=CCM 7598). The proposal is also made to reclassify as comb. nov., with the type strain R2A16-10 (=DSM 17673 =KACC 11405).
