Abstract

This article introduces a new species cultivated from a human foot wound infection in a Dutch traveller returning from the island of Bali, Indonesia: sp. nov. Based on the genomic sequence, there is strong molecular evidence for assigning the strain to a novel species within the complex. Differences in cellular fatty acid spectrum and biochemical tests underline these findings. Its ecological niche and pathogenicity require further study. The type strain is DSM111914 (JCM34415).
