Abstract

Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on four -like organisms recovered from three seals and a porpoise. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that the organisms represent a hitherto unknown subline within the genus , associated with a subcluster containing , and . DNA–DNA hybridization studies confirmed that the bacteria belonged to a single species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of sp. nov. is NCTC 12927 (=CCUG 48653).
