Abstract

Gram-negative anaerobic rods were isolated from blood culture of a healthy baby born at term. Based on phylogenetic analysis and specific phenotypic characteristics, this strain was included within the cluster. The novel bile-resistant anaerobic species was designated and it has 92·8 % 16S rRNA similarity to and a DNA G+C content of 49 mol%. The major cellular fatty acid is anteiso-branched C. The type strain of sp. nov. is B84634 (=CIP 107942=CCUG 48901).
