Abstract
Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on a hitherto undescribe d Gram-positive, catalase-negative, chain-farming coccus isolated from huma n blood. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that the unknown organism constitutes a new phylogenetic line, close to, but distin ct from, Facklamia and Globicatella. The unknown bacterium was readily dist inguished from currently recognized Facklamia species and Globicatella sang uinis by biochemical tests and electrophoretic analysis of whole-cell prote ins. On the basis of phylogenetic and phenotypic evidence, it is proposed t hat the unknown bacterium be classified as Dolosicoccus paucivorans gen. no v., sp. nov. The type strain of Dolosicoccus paucivorans is CCUG 39307(T).
