Abstract

Eight unidentified Gram-positive, rod-shaped organisms were recovered from the tracheas of apparently healthy black storks () and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic analysis. Based on cellular morphology and biochemical criteria the isolates were tentatively assigned to the genus , although three of the organisms did not appear to correspond to any recognized species. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that all of the isolates were phylogenetically members of the genus . Five strains were genotypically identified as representing , whereas the remaining three strains represented a hitherto unknown subline, associated with a small subcluster of species that includes and its close relatives. On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic evidence, it is proposed that the unknown isolates from black storks represent a novel species within the genus , for which the sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CECT 5779 (=BS13=CCUG 47525).
