Abstract

During microbial assessment of cow milk cheese products in the city of Ilorin, Nigeria, a -like isolate was detected that could not be assigned to any known species. Whole-genome sequence analyses against all currently known 26 species confirmed that this isolate constitutes a new taxon within the genus , with highest similarity to (average nucleotide identity of 82.66%, DNA–DNA hybridization of 28.3%). Phenotypically, it differs from by the inability to ferment sucrose, -fucose and starch. The absence of haemolysis and pathogenic islands suggest that this novel species is not pathogenic for humans and animals. The name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain CLIP 2019/01311 (=CIP 111875=DSM 111566).
