Gram-positive-staining, anaerobic, non-spore-forming, lactate- and acetate-producing bacterial strains were isolated from the digestive tracts of different bumblebee species (Bombus lucorum, Bombus pascuorum and Bombus lapidarius). All of the isolates produced fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase activity. A representative strain, BluCI/TPT, was characterized further. Cells of strain BluCI/TPT showed occasional bifurcation and irregular constrictions. The bacterium utilized a wide range of… Expand
Bifidobacterium aesculapii sp. nov., from the faeces of the baby common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus).
TLDR
Six Gram-positive-staining, microaerophilic, non-spore-forming, fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase-positive bacterial strains with a peculiar morphology were isolated from faecal samples of baby common marmosets and represent a novel species within the genus Bifidobacterium. Expand
Bifidobacterium actinocoloniiforme sp. nov. and Bifidobacterium bohemicum sp. nov., from the bumblebee digestive tract.
TLDR
Results indicate that the isolates of the two groups belong to novel species within the genus Bifidobacterium, as proposed by phylogenetic and phenotypic analyses and analysis of 16S rRNA and partial hsp60 gene sequences. Expand
Pseudoscardovia suis gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the family Bifidobacteriaceae isolated from the digestive tract of wild pigs (Sus scrofa).
TLDR
The results of phylogenetic, genotypic and phenotypic analyses support the proposal of a novel taxa, Pseudoscardovia suis gen. nov, more related to recently described Neos Cardovia, Aeriscardovia and other scardovial genera, than to Bifidobacterium species. Expand
Bombiscardovia coagulans gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the family Bifidobacteriaceae isolated from the digestive tract of bumblebees.
TLDR
Bombiscardovia coagulans was found to differ from all scardovial genera in the ability to grow at temperatures as low as 5°C, which was another major phenotypically different characteristic of this new member of the family Bifidobacteriaceae. Expand
Bifidobacterium lemurum sp. nov., from faeces of the ring-tailed lemur (Lemur catta).
TLDR
Four Gram-positive-staining, microaerophilic, non-spore-forming, fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase-positive bacterial strains isolated from a faecal sample of a 5-year-old ring-tailed lemur showed a peculiar morphology, resembling a small coiled snake, a ring shape, or forming a little 'Y' shape, and phylogenetic relationships were determined. Expand
Vagococcus entomophilus sp. nov., from the digestive tract of a wasp (Vespula vulgaris).
TLDR
Three unknown Gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative, facultatively anaerobic and coccus-shaped strains of bacteria were isolated from the digestive tracts of wasps and confirmed that the investigated strains were representatives of a novel bacterial species within the genus Vagoccocus. Expand
Galliscardovia ingluviei gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermophilic bacterium of the family Bifidobacteriaceae isolated from the crop of a laying hen (Gallus gallus f. domestica).
TLDR
Low sequence similarities of phylogenetic markers to related scardovial genera and bifidobacteria along with unique features of the bacterial strain investigated within the family BifidOBacteriaceae clearly indicate that strain RP51T is a representative of a novel genus within theFamily BifIDobacteria. Expand
Lactobacillus bombi sp. nov., from the digestive tract of laboratory-reared bumblebee queens (Bombus terrestris).
TLDR
Genotypes and phylogenetic analyses based on the phylogenetic markers hsp60, pheS, rpoA and tuf as well as phenotypic characteristics and the results of chemotaxonomic analyses confirmed that the new isolates belong to a novel species of the genus Lactobacillus, for which the name LactOBacillus bombi sp.

Reclassification of Eubacterium rectale (Hauduroy et al. 1937) Prévot 1938 in a new genus Agathobacter gen. nov. as Agathobacter rectalis comb. nov., and description of Agathobacter ruminis sp. nov., isolated from the rumen contents of sheep and cows.
TLDR
Three strains of a butyrate-producing bacterium were isolated from the rumen contents of grazing sheep and cows and considered to represent a novel species of a new genus of the family Lachnospiraceae, for which the name Agathobacter ruminis gen. nov., comb nov. is proposed. Expand
Bifidobacterium commune sp. nov. isolated from the bumble bee gut
TLDR
Based on the phylogenetic, genotypic and phenotypic data, it is proposed to classify the four isolates within the novel species Bifidobacterium commune sp. Expand

Alloscardovia omnicolens gen. nov., sp. nov., from human clinical samples.
TLDR
The taxonomic position of 12 isolates tentatively assigned to the genus Bifidobacterium on the basis of a limited phenotypic characterization was examined, and it was suggested that the strains should be considered as a single novel species of a novel genus, for which the name Alloscardovia omnicolens gen. nov. is proposed.
