Abstract

We define two novel species of the genus that are phenotypically similar to and have near identical 16S rRNA gene sequences to . However, compared to and each other, the two species, sp. nov. (type strain MSHR1132 = DSM 28299 = SSI 89.005) and sp. nov. (type strain FSA084 = DSM 28300 = SSI 89.004), demonstrate: 1) at a whole-genome level considerable phylogenetic distance, lack of admixture, average nucleotide identity <95 %, and inferred DNA–DNA hybridization <70 %; 2) different profiles as determined by MALDI-TOF MS; 3) a non-pigmented phenotype for sp. nov.; 4) sp. nov. is not detected by standard PCR; 5) distinct peptidoglycan types compared to ; 6) a separate ecological niche for sp. nov.; and 7) a distinct clinical disease profile for sp. nov. compared to .
