Abstract

During a study of the prevalence of in black-headed gulls () in Sweden, three isolates, strains LMG 24379, LMG 24380 and LMG 24381, were initially identified as . Further characterization by both AFLP and whole-cell protein SDS-PAGE analyses revealed that they formed a distinct group in the genus . This unique position was confirmed by phenotypic characterization, 16S rRNA and gene sequence analysis and DNA–DNA hybridizations. The combined data confirm that these isolates represent a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LMG 24380 (=CCUG 57498).
