Abstract

During an investigation into the microbiota of beaked whales (), nine isolates were obtained from different organs of four animals. The isolates were Gram-positive-staining, catalase-negative, short rod-shaped or coccoid organisms. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences of these isolates allocated them to the genus , showing 96.3 % and 96.0 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with NRIC 1536and NRIC 1625, respectively. On the basis of phenotypic, physiological and phylogenetic evidence, it is proposed that the new isolates from whales represent a novel species of the genus , sp. nov. The type strain of is 1119-1A-09 ( = CECT 7719 = CCUG 59653).
