Abstract: 
Using culturomics, a recently developed strategy based on diversified culture conditions for the isolation of previously uncultured bacteria, we isolated strain Marseille‐P3296T from a fecal sample of a healthy pygmy female. A multiphasic approach, taxono‐genomics, was used to describe the major characteristics of this anaerobic and gram‐positive bacillus that is unable to sporulate and is not motile. The genome of this bacterium is 1,878,572 bp‐long with a 57.94 mol% G + C content. On the basis of these characteristics and after comparison with its closest phylogenetic neighbors, we are confident that strain Marseille‐P3296T (=CCUG 70328 = CSUR P3296) is the type strain of a novel species for which we propose the name Collinsella bouchesdurhonensis sp. nov.
