Abstract

Morphological, biochemical and molecular genetic studies were carried out on an unknown non-spore-forming, Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium that was isolated from dog faeces. The bacterium grew under strictly anaerobic conditions, was asaccharolytic, and possessed a relatively high G+C content of 61 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that the unidentified bacterium was a member of the family and represents a hitherto unknown subline within the genus . Based on the presented findings, a novel species, sp. nov., is described. The type strain of is 5WC12 (=CCUG 48399=CIP 108281).
