Abstract

A previously unknown Gram-positive, catalase-positive, facultatively anaerobic, non-spore-forming, coccus-shaped bacterium (A/G14/99/10), originating from the mouth of a female southern elephant seal, was subjected to a taxonomic analysis. Comparative 16S rRNA gene-sequencing showed that the organism formed a hitherto unknown subline within the catalase-positive, low-G+C, Gram-positive cocci, exhibiting a specific association with species of the genus . Sequence divergence values of approximately 7 %, together with phenotypic differences, showed the unknown bacterium to be distinct from the two described species of this genus, and . Based on phenotypic and phylogenetic considerations, it is proposed that strain A/G14/99/10=CCUG 42722=CIP 107946 from the mouth of a seal be classified as the type strain of a novel species of the genus , sp. nov.
