Abstract

A coryneform bacterium (strain 1094) was isolated from a wound swab taken from an 89-year-old female patient. Chemotaxonomic investigations suggested that this bacterium was related to the genera , and . Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain 1094 was most closely related to CCUG 32789 A (94.3 % similarity). Phenotypically, the isolate could be separated from its closest phylogenetic neighbours on the basis of being positive for catalase, CAMP reaction, acid phosphatase, -acetyl--glucosaminidase and raffinose fermentation. Based on the data presented, it is proposed that strain 1094 should be classified in a novel species, sp. nov. The type strain is 1094 (=CCUG 57540 =DSM 22168).
