Abstract

A Gram-positive-staining, catalase-positive, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, strain IMMIB L-1606, isolated from genital swabs of a horse, was characterized using a polyphasic approach. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that the organism was related to members of the genus , displaying sequence similarities of 93.5–99.1 % with the type strains of recognized species of the genus. Cell-wall analysis revealed peptidoglycan type A3α -Lys–-Ser–-Thr–-Ala. DNA–DNA hybridization data and biochemical characterization of strain IMMIB L-1606 enabled the isolate to be differentiated genotypically and phenotypically from phylogenetically closely related species of the genus . Therefore, it is concluded that strain IMMIB L-1606 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of sp. nov. is IMMIB L-1606 ( = DSM 23395 = CCUG 59597).
