Nomenclatural type
NCBI Assembly: GCA_002454735.1
Nomenclatural status
Validly published under the SeqCode


At least four genomes are available for this species. One genome is of the strain Russ isolated from an indoor trash can in Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA. The other three genomes are MAGs derived from environmental samples of metallic or plastic surfaces on the New York City subway. Pairwise ANI among the 4 genomes is over 99.25% revealing that they belong to a single clonal lineage. The P. borealis clade shares an most recent common ancestor with P. eucrina, and the ANI between genomes of the P. eucrina and this species is approximately 93%. One publication on a representative genome of this species cluster is available and discusses its potential for being an opportunistic human pathogen (Moghadam et al. 2016), however, evidence for pathogenicity isn't available. The nomenclatural type for the species is the MAG UBA6694Ts, available under the GenBank assembly accession number GCA_002454735.1.
