Abstract

A novel strain, C-138, belonging to the genus was isolated from a severe thigh liposarcoma infection and its differentiation from and is described. Analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences, sequences and the PCR profile of the 16S–23S spacer regions was not conclusive enough to differentiate strain C-138 from and . However, according to DNA–DNA hybridization data, strain C-138 constitutes a member of a distinct novel species. It can be differentiated from strains of and by colony morphology, the absence of -glucosidase and some biochemical characteristics such as glucose fermentation at 42 °C and carbon assimilation substrates. The name sp. nov. is proposed for this novel species; the type strain is C-138 (=CIP 108444=CCUG 53252).
