Abstract

Among a large collection of South African dairy isolates, a novel taxon (DNA group 3) was previously delineated by a polyphasic taxonomic study ( Hugo ., , 586–595, 1999 ). In the present paper, this taxon is further characterized using 16S rDNA sequencing, fatty acid methyl ester analysis and a comparative phenotypic analysis, resulting in the proposal of a novel species, sp. nov. (type strain Ix 5a=LMG 18212=CCUG 46665).
