Abstract

Three isolated strains from human feces were characterized by biochemical tests and 16S rDNA analysis. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that these isolated strains were members of the <i>Clostridium</i> subphylum of Gram-positive bacteria. The phenotypic characters resembled those of the genus <i>Eubacterium</i>, but these strains were shown to be phylogenetically distant from the type species of the genus, <i>Eubacterium</i> <i>limosum</i>. The strains showed a specific phylogenetic association with <i>Holdemania filiformis</i> and <i>Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae</i>. Based on a 16S rDNA sequence divergence of greater than 12% with <i>H. filiformis</i> and <i>E. rhusiopathiae</i>, a new genus, <i>Solobacterium</i>, is proposed for three strains, with one species, <i>Solobacterium moorei</i>. The type strain of <i>Solobacterium moorei</i> is JCM 10645<sup>T</sup>.
