A case of surgical wound infection caused by Psychrobacter phenylpyruvicus-like organism is described. The strain showed phenotypic characteristics typical of P. phenylpyruvicus, but 16S rRNA sequencing showed 98.2% relatedness to Moraxella phenylpyruvica strain 752/52 and only 94.8% with P. phenylpyruvicus type strain ATCC 23333(T). The results of molecular analysis suggest that the strain we isolated may represent a new species within the genus Psychrobacter.
