Abstract

Biochemical and molecular genetic studies were performed on a novel Gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative, coccus-shaped organism isolated from tonsil samples of two Iberian ibexes. The micro-organism was identified as a streptococcal species based on its cellular, morphological and biochemical characteristics. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison studies confirmed its identification as a member of the genus , but the organism did not correspond to any species of this genus. The nearest phylogenetic relative of the unknown coccus from ibex was 2923-03 (96.6 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity). Analysis based on and gene sequences revealed sequence similarity values lower than 86.0 and 83.8 %, respectively, from the type strains of recognized species. The novel bacterial isolate was distinguished from and other species using biochemical tests. Based on both phenotypic and phylogenetic findings, it is proposed that the unknown bacterium be classified as representing a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is DICM07-02790-1C ( = CECT 8872 = CCUG 67170).
