Abstract

A new species is described. It is obligately anaerobic and classified in the genus because it is a Gram-positive coccus growing in pairs and chains, with a homolactic fermentation of glucose producing -lactic acid. The GC content of the DNA is 39 mol %. The organism has been mainly isolated from chickens, turkeys and ducks.
