Abstract

A previously undescribed, rapid-growing, non-chromogenic isolate from a goat lung lesion in Algeria is reported. Biochemical and molecular tools were used for its complete description and showed its affiliation to the complex. 16S rRNA, and gene sequences were unique. Phylogenetic analyses showed a close relationship with and . Culture and biochemical characteristics were generally similar to those of and . However, in contrast to and , the isolate was positive for urease production and had faster growth. The mycolic acid profile was distinct from those of and , thus further supporting the new taxonomic position of the isolate. We propose the name sp. nov. for this novel species. The type strain is TBE 500028/10 ( = Bejaia = CIP 110121 = DSM 45454).
