Abstract

Six isolates of with similar non-standard colonial morphologies were identified during studies isolating from bird faeces and rivers in New Zealand. Genomic (16S rRNA gene sequencing and whole genome analysis) and phenotypic (MALDI-TOF analysis and conventional biochemical tests) showed that the isolates form a monophyletic clade with genetic relationships to / and /. They may be distinguished from other by their MALDI-TOF spectral pattern, their florid α-haemolysis, their ability to grow anaerobically at 37 °C, and on 2 % NaCl nutrient agar, and their lack of hippuricase. This study shows that these isolates represent a novel species within the genus for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The presence of in water may be a confounder for freshwater microbial risk assessment as they may not be pathogenic for humans. The type strain is B423b (=NZRM 4741=ATCC TSD-167).
