Abstract

A gram-stain-positive, facultatively anaerobic, non-spore-forming, catalase-negative, coccoid-shaped bacterial strain, designated BV2, was isolated from the vaginal mucosa of a beef cow in Japan. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the isolate shared high 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (92.9 %) with 1821/02 and low similarity (<92.7 %) with any other recognized species of the genus . The DNA G+C content was 44.7 mol%, which is within the range observed among species of the genus (37.5–48.4 mol%). The major cellular fatty acid was Cω9, similar to other type strains of species of the genus . The results of genotypic, phenotypic and chemotaxonomic analyses as well as the low degree of DNA–DNA relatedness with all recognized members of the genus indicate that strain BV2 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BV2 ( = JCM 19163 = DSM 27293). Emended descriptions of , , , , , and are also presented.
