Abstract

is a recently described species that belongs to the complex. It has been recovered from clinical samples and is sometimes associated with antimicrobial resistance determinants. We present here the case of three clinical isolates which were initially identified as sp. by phenotypic methods but no identification at the species level was achieved using semi-automated identification methods. The isolates were further analysed by whole genome sequencing and identified as . Due to the fact that has been isolated from serious infections such as respiratory tract and bloodstream infections, we emphasize the importance of correctly identifying isolates of the genus at the species level to gain a deeper knowledge of their prevalence and clinical impact.
