Abstract

A motile, spore-forming and rod-shaped bacterium was isolated from a chiken feed. The strain is Gram-positive, catalase-negative and is a typical homo-lactic acid fermenter producing leavo-rotatory lactic acid. Taxonomic position of this unusual strain was discussed and it was suggested that the organism represents an intermediate form between Lactobacillus and Clostridium, for which erection of a new subgenus Sporolactobacillus (in Lactobacillaceae) was proposed. The species was named Sporolactobacillus inulinus nov. sp. taking into account its powerful inulin fermenting activity.
