Abstract
16S rRNA gene sequences were determined for Eubacterium exiguum and Peptost reptococcus heliotrinreducens. These species were found to be closely relat ed and, together with Eubacterium lentum, to constitute a branch of the Cor iobacteriaceae. Two new genera are proposed on the basis of phenotypic char acteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons: Slackia to include the bile-sensitive species Eubacterium exiguum and P. heliotrinreducens, and Eg gerthella to include the bile-resistant Eubacterium lentum. It is proposed that Eukacterium exiguum and Peptostreptococcus heliotrinreducens are trans ferred to the genus Slackia gen. nov. as Slackia exigua gen. nov., comb. no v. (type strain ATCC 700122(T)) and Slackia heliotrinireducens gen. nov., c omb. nov. (type strain NTCC 11029(T)), respectively, and Eubacterium lentum is transferred to the genus Eggerthella gen. nov. as Eggerthella lenta gen , nov., comb, nov. with Eggerthella lenta as the type species.
