Mycoplasmas were isolated from multiple tissues of diseased American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis). This paper presents biochemical, serological and molecular genetic characterizations of a lethal pathogen of alligators for which the name Mycoplasma alligatoris sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is A21JP2T (ATCC 700619T).
