In studying the composition of the Lactobacillus flora of faeces from pigs fed different diets, isolates with notable differences in their 16S rRNA gene sequence compared to recognized species were found. Phenotypic characteristics together with 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the isolates represented a novel species belonging to the Lactobacillus mali subgroup of lactobacilli. The name Lactobacillus saerimneri sp. nov. is proposed (type strain GDA154T=LMG 22087T=DSM 16049T=CCUG 48462T).
