Abstract

A total of 25 strains isolated from parrots, budgerigars, parakeets (Psittaciformes) and a chicken, mostly associated with respiratory disease or septicaemia, were classified as a new genus, gen. nov., within the family , on the basis on unique phenotypic characteristics and clear monophyly as determined by 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison. Comparison of 16S rRNA gene sequences from six strains showed at least 98·8 % similarity and the closest similarity outside the genus was found to Bisgaard taxon 34 and to , at 94·6 and 94·5 %, respectively. Phenotypes that separate the new genus from other genera of the included at least two characters. The genus includes two species, sp. nov. and sp. nov., corresponding to the two biovars previously outlined, underlining that most isolates have been obtained from psittacine birds. The two species can be separated by fermentation of -inositol, (−)--fucose, maltose and dextrin and a positive ONPG test. The type strains for and are respectively Gerl. 236/81 (=CCUG 47536=DSM 15534) and 146/S8/89 (=CCUG 47537=DSM 15535).
