Abstract

Two clinical strains, NF 296 and NF 931, present in our collection, were identified biochemically as members of CDC group II-i. Determination of the 16S rRNA gene sequence revealed highest similarity with strains of . Because these strains produced indole, whereas has been described as indole-negative, we also investigated the type strain and a reference strain of , LMG 8340 ( = CCUG 15907) and LMG 8341 ( = CCUG 15908), and found both strains also to be positive for indole production. These data warrant inclusion of some of the CDC group II-i strains into and emended descriptions of as indole-production-positive and of the genus as variable for indole production.
