Abstract

A coccal strain isolated from fresh broccoli was initially identified as ; however, molecular identification and phenotypic traits did not support this identification. DNA–DNA hybridization with the type strain of (76.4 % relatedness), DNA G+C content (35.7 mol%), phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA, and gene sequences, rep-PCR fingerprinting and profiles of cellular fatty acids, whole-cell proteins and enzyme activities, together with carbohydrate metabolism characteristics, indicated that this strain is distinct and represents a novel subspecies, for which the name subsp. subsp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 812 ( = NBRC 109476 = BCRC 80575). Furthermore, we present an emended description of and proposal of subsp. subsp. nov. (type strain ATCC 43076 = CCUG 27643 = CCUG 33311 = CIP 103246 = DSM 20726 = JCM 8734 = LMG 11427 = NBRC 100493 = NCIMB 702594).
