Abstract

A pleomorphic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped, indole-, oxidase- and catalase-negative, non-spore-forming, non-motile bacterium was isolated in 1979 from the heart of a spinifex hopping mouse ( Thomas, 1922) with septicaemia and stored as in the strain collection of the Animal Health Laboratory, South Perth, Western Australia (AHL 370-1), as well as under CCUG 12425. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses, the strain was assigned to the genus , with 99.4 % sequence similarity to the type strain of , 95.6 % sequence similarity to the type strain of and 99.0 % sequence similarity to the type strain of . The clear differentiation of strain AHL 370-1 from , and was also supported by , and nucleotide and amino acid sequence analysis. Average nucleotide identity was 87.16 % between strain AHL 370-1 and DSM 12112. Physiological data confirmed the allocation of strain AHL 370-1 to the family , considering the very similar profiles of enzyme activities and fatty acids compared to closely related species. Within the genus , isolate AHL 370-1 could also be separated unambiguously from the type strains of and by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. Two further strains (KWG2 and KWG24) isolated from asymptomatic black rats in Japan were highly similar to AHL 370-1. On the basis of these data, we propose the novel species sp. nov., with the type strain AHL 370-1 ( = CCUG 12425 = DSM 100026 = CCM 8593 = EF 12425).
