Abstract

Deoxyribonucleic acid base composition, deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization, and biochemical studies were performed on some enterococci from clinical sources of uncertain taxonomic position. Our results indicate that 6 human strains, a single clinical isolate and a strain from bovine mastitis are genetically distinct from each other and all other previously described Enterococcus species and constitute three new species, for which the names Enterococcus raffinosus, Enterococcus solitarius and Enterococcus pseudoavium are proposed.
