Abstract

Biochemical, molecular chemical and molecular genetic studies were performed on seven unidentified Gram-positive, rod-shaped organisms recovered from eagles. The strains were provisionally identified as with the commercial API Coryne system, but they were able to grow under anaerobic conditions and were non-lipophilic. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that the isolates belonged phylogenetically to the genus . Three strains were identified genotypically as ; the remaining four strains corresponded to a hitherto unknown lineage within the genus , associated with a small subcluster of species that included and its close relatives. The unknown bacterial strains were readily distinguished from these and other species of the genus by biochemical tests. Based on both phenotypic and phylogenetic evidence, it is proposed that the unknown bacterial strains from eagles should be classified as sp. nov. (type strain is S-613=CECT 5993 =CCUG 46511).
