Abstract

Two Gram-stain-negative, gently curved rod-shaped isolates (WBE14 and WBE19), recovered from wild bird faecal samples in the city of Valdivia (Southern Chile) were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Results of a genus-specific PCR indicated that these isolates belonged to the genus . This was further confirmed by a phylogenetic analyses based on the 16S rRNA, 60 kDa heat-shock protein () and gyrase subunit B () genes, where both strains formed a novel phylogenetic line within this genus. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of strain WBE14 to the type strains of all other species of the genus examined ranged from 89.4 to 97.0 %; and were the most closely related species. However, on the basis of the protein-coding genes and are the most closely related species. These data, together with their different morphological and biochemical characteristics, revealed that these strains represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain WBE14 ( = CECT 8410 = LMG 27920).
