Abstract

Six Gram-stain-negative, spiral-shaped, microaerobic isolates were obtained during a sampling from wild birds in the sub-Antarctic region. Based on initial observations, these isolates were classified as -like. The isolates were further characterized by whole-cell protein and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis, which revealed that they were distinct from and all other known species of the genus . Here, we present comprehensive phylogenetic, genomic and phenotypic evidence that these isolates represent a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is R-3023 (=LMG 24377 =CCUG 38513).
