Peptoniphilus senegalensis strain JC140(T) sp. nov., is the type strain of P. senegalensis sp. nov., a new species within the genus Peptoniphilus. This strain, whose genome is described here, was isolated from the fecal flora of a healthy patient. P. senegalensis strain JC140(T) is an obligate Gram-positive anaerobic coccus. Here we describe the features of this organism, together with the complete genome sequence and annotation. The 1,840,641 bp long genome (1 chromosome but no plasmid) exhibits a G+C content of 32.2% and contains 1,744 protein-coding and 23 RNA genes, including 3 rRNA genes.
