Abstract

A group of 11 bacterial strains was isolated during microbiological investigations of pharyngeal swabs collected from domestic pigeons ( f. ). Phenotypic properties of the isolates closely resembled those of members of the genus within the family . The genus presently contains two species, and . The pigeon isolates differed from by their lack of pigment production and negative CAMP co-haemolysis reaction. They grew more slowly at 37 °C under microaerobic conditions and showed reduced viability during storage under aerobic conditions at different temperatures, compared with both species. Comparisons of protein profiles with matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization–time of flight (MALDI-TOF) MS analysis allowed differentiation between the new pigeon isolates and both and . Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene and gene (encoding RNA polymerase beta subunit) sequences supported the affiliation of the 11 strains to a novel species within the genus , for which we propose the name sp. nov. The type strain is 8151 ( = DSM 24015  = LMG 26094). Emended descriptions of the genus and of its species and are also presented.
