Abstract

Four Gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative, coccoid-shaped isolates were obtained from the oral cavities of wild boars and characterized by phenotypic and phylogenetic studies. On the results of biochemical tests, the organisms were tentatively identified as a streptococcal species. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies confirmed that the organisms are members of the genus , with subsp. ATCC 33398 as their closest phylogenetic relative (94.7 % similarity). DNA–DNA hybridization analysis showed that the isolates displayed less than 10 % relatedness to subsp. DSM 20561. From the phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, the four isolates represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. (type strain NUM 1529 =JCM 15752 =DSM 21999) is proposed.
