Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive strain, 8 H-2, was isolated from faeces of Reeves’ muntjac () barking deer in Taiwan. Cells of the strain were short rod-shaped, non-motile, non-haemolytic, asporogenous, facultatively anaerobic, heterofermentative and did not exhibit catalase and oxidase activities. Comparative analyses of 16S rRNA, and gene sequences demonstrated that the novel strain was a member of the genus . On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, the type strains of (99.2 %), (97.8 %), (97.6 %) and (97.3 %) were the closest neighbours to strain 8 H-2. The concatenated housekeeping gene sequence ( and ) similarities of 8 H-2 to closely related type strains were 72.5–84.9 %, respectively. The genomic DNA G+C content was 40.5 mol%. The average nucleotide identity and digital DNA–DNA hybridization values with these type strains were 70.2–75.4% and 25.1–30.1 %, respectively. Phenotypic and genotypic test results demonstrated that strain 8 H-2 represents a novel species belonging to the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 8 H-2 (=BCRC 81133=NBRC 113537).
