Abstract

A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on nine isolates recovered from various human clinical samples. Phenotypically, these isolates resembled . Whole-cell protein analysis distinguished two different species, and this was confirmed by DNA–DNA hybridizations. Cellular fatty acid analysis and 16S rDNA sequence analysis indicated that these isolates were related to the genera , , and and belonged to the family . On the basis of the results of this study, the organisms were classified in a novel genus, gen. nov. This genus comprises one species, sp. nov. (type strain LMG 5906=API 184-2-84=CCUG 47000), and several unnamed isolates. The DNA G+C content of members of the genus is between 61·5 and 62·9 mol%. On the basis of previously published DNA–DNA hybridization results and data from chemotaxonomic studies, it is proposed that Rüger and Tan 1983 be reclassified as comb. nov.
