Strain FF11T was isolated from the wound on a researcher's finger who had been bitten by a fish (Protopterus annectens) in Senegal. Analysis by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry did not provide any identification, but the 16S rRNA sequence exhibited 97.9% identity with Dermabacter hominis. Phenotypic and genomic analyses demonstrated that strain FF11T is Gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic, nonmotile and non-spore forming; it exhibited a genome of 2 222 902 bp encoding 2074 protein-coding and 50 RNA genes, with a 63.2% G+C content. We consequently proposed the creation of Dermabacter indicis strain FF11T.
