Abstract

C6786, the clinical isolate of the ‘Oklahoma’ strain of (now ) , was originally isolated in 1973 from a wound infection resulting from a farming accident in Oklahoma, USA. Environmental isolates C7532 and C7533 from the Oklahoma accident site were found to match C6786. These three isolates and a clinical isolate originally identified as that was recovered from a person in Georgia, USA, involved in an automobile accident were characterized by biochemical, 16S rRNA gene sequencing, multilocus sequence typing and DNA–DNA hybridization analyses. Results indicated that these strains comprise a novel species. The name sp. nov. is proposed, with strain C6786 (=LMG 23618=NCTC 13387=CCUG 51349) as the type strain.
