Abstract
Phascolarctobacterium faecium gen.nov., spec.nov. has been described f or Gram-negatively staining, nonsporing, chemoorganotrophic, pleomorph ic rods that were isolated from koala faeces. Propionate is the main e nd product of succinate fermentation and growth of satellite colonies occurs around colonies of succinate producing Escherichia coli cells. Phylogenetically, the novel genus groups within the Sporomusa branch o f the Clostridium/Bacillus subphylum of Gram-positive bacteria and is a neighbor of Acidaminococcus fermentans.
