listeria floridensis sp. nov., listeria aquatica sp. nov., listeria cornellensis sp. nov., listeria riparia sp. nov. and listeria grandensis sp. nov., from agricultural and natural environments.sampling of agricultural and natural environments in two us states (colorado and florida) yielded 18 listeria-like isolates that could not be assigned to previously described species using traditional methods. using whole-genome sequencing and traditional phenotypic methods, we identified five novel species, each with a genome-wide average blast nucleotide identity (anib) of less than 85% to currently described species. phylogenetic analysis based on 16s rrna gene sequences and amino acid sequen ...201424599893
