Abstract

Two bacterial strains isolated from different hospitals in Japan were subjected to a polyphasic analysis. Strains IFM 0803 and IFM 10383 were found to have morphological, biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with their classification in the genus . Strains IFM 0803 and IFM 10383 clustered with the type strain of , showing 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of 98.6–98.9 % with this species. The novel strains could be distinguished from by a range of phenotypic properties. Based on their phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics, the two isolates are proposed as members of a novel species of the genus sp. nov., with the type strain IFM 0803 (=NBRC 100660=JCM 12667=DSM 44883).
