Abstract

Three Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria were isolated from clinical specimens between 1992 and 2000. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, these strains (CCUG 30717, CCUG 43892 and CCUG 38531) were shown to belong to the , most closely related to (99.0 and 98.2 % similarity to the type strain). Chemotaxonomic data (major ubiquinone Q-10; major polyamines spermidine, -homospermidine and putrescine; major polar lipids phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylcholine; major fatty acids C 7 and C cyclo 8) supported the affiliation of the isolates to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of the isolates from described species. Isolates CCUG 30717 and CCUG 43892 were closely related on the basis of DNA–DNA reassociation experiments and therefore represent one novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain CCUG 30717 (=CIP 109451). Isolate CCUG 38531 was different from these strains and also from other species. For this strain, the name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain CCUG 38531 (=CIP 109452).
