Five rapidly growing, glucose-fermenting Mycoplasma strains were isolated from the lungs of mink kits. Biochemical and serological studies revealed that these isolates were different from all of the currently accepted Mycoplasma species and serogroups. These strains appear to constitute a new species, for which we propose the name Mycoplasma mustelae. The type strain of M. mustelae is strain MX9, and this strain has been deposited in the Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Animal Mycoplasmas, Institute of Medical Microbiology, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark, as strain AMRC-C 1486, in the American Type Culture Collection, Rockville, Md., as strain ATCC 35214, and in the National Collection of Type Cultures, London, England, as strain NCTC 10193.
