Abstract

A coryneform strain, 06-1773O (=WAL 19168), derived from a groin abscess sample was characterized using phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods. Comparative analyses revealed more than 3 % divergence of the 16S rRNA gene sequence and about 10 % divergence of the partial gene sequence from the type strain of . The strain could also be differentiated from by a set of phenotypic properties. A DNA–DNA relatedness study between strain WAL 19168 and CCUG 35055 showed a relatedness value of 13.3 % (13.7 % on repeat analysis). The genotypic and phenotypic data show that the strain merits classification within a novel species of . We propose the name sp. nov. for the novel species. The type strain is 06-1773O (=WAL 19168 =CCUG 57046 =ATCC BAA-1742).
