Abstract

Strains of members of the genus derived from ophthalmologic patients in Japan, Belgium and Switzerland and found to be closely related to-, but distinguishable from by 16S rRNA gene sequencing, were characterized using biochemical, chemotaxonomic, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and antimicrobial susceptibility methods and DNA–DNA hybridization as well as by whole-genome sequencing (WGS). Based on this investigation, we describe sp. nov. and sp. nov., derived from human ocular specimens, as well as emend the description of . Type strains for these species are: R-50085 (=LMG 28276 =CCUG 65815) and R-50187(=LMG 28277 =CCUG 65816). DNA G+C content was found to be 62.2 % (by HPLC) and 62.8 % (by WGS) for R-50085, 64.1 % (HPLC) and 64.8 % (WGS) for R-50187 and 67.8 % (HPLC) for LMG 19040 [=S-8 =CCUG 38654 =CECT 4843 =CIP 105509 =DSM 44356 =IFO (NBRC)16160 =JCM 12269].
