Abstract

Seven strains of anaerobic Gram-positive cocci isolated from human oral sites were subjected to a comprehensive range of phenotypic and genotypic tests. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the strains constituted a homogeneous group that was distinct from species with validly published names, but related to . All oral strains tested belonged to this group, whereas all non-oral strains studied were confirmed as . A novel species, sp. nov., is proposed to accommodate these oral strains. is weakly saccharolytic and produces acetic, butyric, isobutyric, isovaleric and isocaproic acids as end products of fermentation. The type strain of is W2278 (=DSM 17678=CCUG 51858); the G+C content of the DNA of this strain is 36 mol%.
