Abstract

-like bacteria were observed in histological examinations of samples of diseased foot skin from greater flamingos () living in zoological gardens in Switzerland. When grown on TSA-SB containing polymyxin B, the bacteria isolated from these skin samples formed hyphae, as is typical for , but these bacteria were non-haemolytic. The closest relatives based on 16S rRNA gene sequences were the two members of the genus , and . A representative of the isolated strains shared 34.3 % DNA–DNA relatedness with the type strain of , 32.3 % with the type strain of and 34.5 % with the type strain of , demonstrating that these strains do not belong to any of these species. The phenotypic characteristics differed from those of members of the genus as well as from those of . The G+C content of strain KM 894/11 was 71.6 mol%. The most abundant fatty acids were iso-C, summed feature 3 (including Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH) and Cω9. MK-8(H4) was the predominant menaquinone. Cell-wall structure analysis revealed that the peptidoglycan type was A3γ -Dpm–Gly (type A41.1). Based on genotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, the isolated strains represent a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is KM 894/11 ( = DSM 25571 = CCUG 62181 = CCOS 690), and strain KM 1/12 ( = DSM 25572 = CCUG 62182 = CCOS 691) is a reference strain.
