Abstract

Four strains isolated from Indian dairy products and initially identified as could not be assigned to a definite subspecies because molecular identification and phenotypic traits did not agree with those of recognized subspecies of . Hybridization of total DNA (78–86 % against type strains of the other three subspecies), AFLP and RAPD-PCR fingerprints, phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences and sequence analysis of two coding genes ( and ), together with phenotypic profiles, indicated that the four strains form a coherent cluster and represent a novel subspecies, for which the name subsp. subsp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is NCC725 (=LMG 22083=DSM 15996).
