Abstract

A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on 22 thermotolerant, aerobic, endospore-forming bacteria from dairy environments. Seventeen isolates were retrieved from raw milk, one from a filter cloth and four were from grass, straw and milking equipment. These four isolates (R-6546, R-7499, R-7764 and R-7440) were identified as Bacillus thermoamylovorans based on DNA/DNA hybridisations (values above 70% with LMG 18084T, the type strain of Bacillus thermoamylovorans) but showed discrepancies in characteristics with the original species description, so an emended description of this species is given.
