Abstract

Biochemical and molecular genetic studies were performed on two novel Gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative, coccus-shaped organisms isolated from liquid joint samples of two pigs. The micro-organisms were not identified as members of a recognized species based on results of cellular, morphological and biochemical tests. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison studies allowed their identification as members of the genus , but the organisms were different to , the single species of the genus. The two micro-organisms shared 96.3 and 96.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values with their nearest phylogenetic relative, . The novel bacterial isolates were distinguished from using biochemical tests. Based on both phenotypic and phylogenetic findings, it is proposed that the unknown bacteria be classified as representatives of two novel species of the genus , sp. nov. and sp. nov. The type strain of sp. nov. is 1804-02 (=CECT 9156=CCUG 69148) and that of sp. nov. is 1805-02 (=CECT 9157=CCUG 69147).
