Abstract

A Gram-positive-staining, coccoid-shaped, non-motile, asporogenous, obligately anaerobic and butyrate-producing bacterium was recovered from a healthy human’s faeces. The organism was isolated by the enrichment culture technique using yeast extract-casein hydrolysate-fatty acids broth supplemented with 0.5 % mucin. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences demonstrated that the novel strain should be classified as a member of the -related cluster in the family . Furthermore, this analysis demonstrated that the type strains of (95.6 %) and (94.7 %) were the closest phylogenetic neighbours to strain YIT 12789. However, DNA‒DNA reassociation values with these closest strains were less than 20 %. On the basis of the phenotypic, genotypic and chemotaxonomic features, the novel coccoid-shaped bacterium should be designated as a representative of a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is YIT 12789 (=JCM 31056=DSM 100989). It is also proposed that be reclassified in the genus as comb. nov.
