Abstract

Nine isolates, which were obtained from tonsils, anal swabs and faeces of dogs and from tonsils of a cat and a calf, constituted a homogeneous but unidentified taxon after screening with tRNA intergenic length polymorphism analysis and whole-cell protein fingerprinting. 16S rDNA sequence analysis classified representative strains in the genus . Highest sequence similarity (95·9 %) was obtained with . Growth characteristics, biochemical features, DNA–DNA hybridization and DNA G+C contents of selected strains demonstrated that they represent a single, novel streptococcal species. The name sp. nov. is proposed for the novel species; the type strain (ON59=LMG 21734=CCUG 47487) was isolated from a dog tonsil.
