Abstract

Earlier investigations have shown that ‘’, ‘’ and ‘’ represent the same species. In the present investigation, the taxonomic position of this species is explored further by sequencing the 16S rRNA and genes of strains that were investigated previously by DNA–DNA hybridization. These results clearly support the allocation of this species to a novel genus within the family . The phenotypic separation of gen. nov., sp. nov. from other members of the family can, for most strains, be based on capnophilia, yellowish pigmentation and indole production. However, due to phenotypic variation, the use of a species-specific PCR test based on the 16S rRNA gene is included in the species description. This is justified by the high sequence similarity of the 16S rRNA gene within the species and the fact that the highest sequence similarity to any other taxon within the family is 93·4 %. The type strain, 8025=ATCC 43625=CCUG 36157, was isolated in the USA from a bovine brain with lesions of thromboembolic meningoencephalitis.
