Abstract

, a newly established species originally from sea sediments, was repeatedly recovered from peripancreatic drainages in a patient and was the probable pathogen of hospital-acquired peripancreatic infection. A commercially available system misidentified it as , suggesting that some previous reported cases with infection might have been caused by other species. Precise species identification of species usually requires sequencing.
