A new Salmonella subspecies designated as S. choleraesuis subsp. indica (shortly, subspecies VI) was delineated on the basis of biochemical characters and genomic relatedness. Eight serovars were assigned to this subspecies: one of these was previously classified in subspecies I (serovar Ferlac) and seven in subspecies II. This subspecies can be identified by five biochemical characters: gelatinase+, malonate-, L(+)tartrate-, salicin- and sorbitol-. The type strain is CIP 102501 (serovar 1,6,14,25:a:e,n,x formerly called Ferlac).
