Abstract

Seven Gram-positive, coryneform bacteria with virtually identical whole-organism protein patterns were isolated from the surface of smear-ripened cheeses. Representatives of these strains were the subject of a polyphasic study designed to establish their taxonomic status. The organisms formed a distinct branch in the 16S rRNA gene tree and were most closely related to members of the genus , sharing sequence similarities of 95.4–98.7 %. The chemotaxonomic profiles of the strains were consistent with their classification in the genus . The combined genotypic and phenotypic data show that the isolates should be classified in the genus as representatives of a novel species. The name sp. nov. is proposed for this taxon. Isolate R-17892t2 (=DSM 18061=LMG 22410) is the type strain of sp. nov.
