Abstract

Six strains of a hitherto unknown, Gram-stain-positive coccus were recovered from samples of Spanish-style green-olive fermentations. The 16S rRNA gene sequences from these isolates shared 98.7 % and 98.5 % of their nucleotide positions with those from 812 and from ATCC 43076, respectively. The sequence of the gene in the isolates was 95 % similar to that of CECT 4309 ( = ATCC 43076). The 16S rRNA and gene phylogenies revealed that the isolates grouped in a statistically well-supported cluster separate from . Enzyme activity profiles as well as fermentation patterns differentiated the novel bacteria from other members of the genus. Finally, phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic data supported the identification of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is IGG16.11 ( = CECT 8063 = DSM 25431).
