Abstract

The phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of seventeen Achromobacter strains representing MLST genogroups 2, 5, 7 and 14 were examined. Although genogroup 2 and 14 strains shared a DNA-DNA hybridization level of about 70%, the type strains of both genogroups differed in numerous biochemical characteristics and all genogroup 2 and 14 strains could by distinguished by nitrite reduction, denitrification and growth on acetamide. Given the MLST sequence divergence which identified genogroups 2 and 14 as clearly distinct populations, the availability of nrdA sequence analysis as a single locus identification tool for all Achromobacter species and genogroups, and the differential phenotypic characteristics, we propose to formally classify Achromobacter genogroups 2, 5, 7 and 14 as four novel Achromobacter species for which we propose the names Achromobacter insuavis sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26845(T) [=CCUG 62426(T)] as the type strain), Achromobacter aegrifaciens sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26852(T) [=CCUG 62438(T)] as the type strain), Achromobacter anxifer sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26857(T) [=CCUG 62444(T)] as the type strain), and Achromobacter dolens sp. nov. (with strain LMG 26840(T) [=CCUG 62421(T)] as the type strain).
