Abstract

Strains from anal swabs and chronic otitis externa in dogs were shown to be phylogenetically related to the species group. They shared a number of phenotypic characteristics with these species, but they could be easily differentiated by biochemical reactions. In addition, the canine strains were unusual in their nearly complete failure to grow on sodium azide-containing enterococci-selective media and in their Voges–Proskauer reactions (usually negative). By using 16S rRNA sequencing and DNA–DNA hybridization of representative strains, as well as tDNA interspacer gene PCR and SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins, the group of canine strains was shown to constitute a novel enterococcal species. The name sp. nov. is proposed for this species, with LMG 12316 (=CCUG 46666) as the type strain. Concurrently, the taxonomic situation and nomenclatural position of were investigated. As no phenotypic or genotypic differences were found between this species and , the name is considered to be a junior synonym of .
