Abstract

A catalase-positive, rod-shaped, non-proteolytic, non-motile, anaerobic bacterial strain, designated B086562, was isolated from a blood culture of an 84-year-old male patient in Israel. According to 16S rRNA gene sequence phylogeny, this strain has no known close relatives among recognized bacteria but should be placed within the family . The most closely related recognized bacteria were from the ‘ group’: (92.4 %) and (92.3 %). The isolate produced butyrate, lactate, acetate and succinate as major metabolic end products. The major fatty acids were C and C 9 DMA and the DNA G+C content was 46.0 mol%. On the basis of the phenotypic properties and phylogenetic distinctiveness, the blood isolate represents a novel species of a new genus in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is B086562 ( = LMG 27400 = DSM 26961 = ATCC BAA-2558).
