Abstract

Gram-positive, spore-forming rods were isolated from blood cultures of three different patients. Based on phylogenetic analyses, these strains were placed within the Paenibacillus cluster and specific phenotypic characteristics for each strain were described. Levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between existing Paenibacillus species and the three novel strains 2301065T, 2301032T and 2301083T were 87.6-94.4, 88.5-95.4 and 87.5-96.0 %, respectively, and anteiso-branched C(15 : 0) was the major fatty acid. On the basis of phenotypic data and phylogenetic inference, it is proposed that these strains should be designated Paenibacillus massiliensis sp. nov., Paenibacillus sanguinis sp. nov. and Paenibacillus timonensis sp. nov. The type strains are respectively strain 2301065T (=CIP 107939T=CCUG 48215T), strain 2301083T (=CIP 107938T=CCUG 48214T) and strain 2301032T (=CIP 108005T=CCUG 48216T).
