Abstract

The increasing availability of whole genome sequencing of bacteria has accelerated the discovery of novel species which may not have been easy to discriminate using standard phenotypic or single gene methods. Phylogenomic analysis of genome sequences from a collection of coagulase-negative staphylococcal species isolated from captive fruit bats revealed two clusters which were close to . To assess the relatedness of the strains we used digital DNA–DNA hybridization (dDDH) and two methods for average nucleotide identity (ANI) computation which predicted two novel species having dDDH less than 70 % and ANI less than 95%. We propose these species as sp. nov. (type strain 23_2_7_LY=NCTC 14453=DSM 111639) and sp. nov (type strain 27_4_6_LY=NCTC 14454=DSM 111640).
