Abstract

Strain CAIM 1838, isolated from the hepatopancreas of a cultured diseased Pacific white shrimp (), was subjected to characterization by a polyphasic taxonomic approach. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain CAIM 1838 was most closely related to 99.3 % and to other species of the Pyogenes clade of with lower similarity values. Average nucleotide identity values and the genome-to-genome distance of strain CAIM 1838, as compared with the type strains, confirmed the separate species status with closely related species of the genus and were all below the thresholds to delimit a species, 93.1 and 49.4 %, respectively. The DNA G+C content was 38.1 mol%. Differential phylogenetic distinctiveness together with phenotypic properties obtained in this study revealed that strain CAIM 1838 could be differentiated from the closely related species. Based on these results it is proposed that strain CAIM 1838 represents a novel species in the genus Streptococcus, for which the name sp. nov is proposed (type strain, CAIM 1838=CECT 8596,=DSM26545), is proposed.
