Abstract

An unidentified Gram-negative-staining, aerobic, rod-shaped, spore-forming bacterium was isolated from a sample of cerebrospinal fluid. Based on comparative analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences and phenotypic characteristics, the novel isolate was included in the -like group. The isolate was closely related to and , with 96.2 and 94.4 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, respectively. The major fatty acid was iso-C (48 %). The name sp. nov. is proposed for the novel isolate, with strain 4400831 (=CIP 108446=CCUG 49529) as the type strain.
