Yersinia intermedia is a Gram-negative species of bacteria[1] which uses rhamnose, melibiose, and raffinose. Its type strain is strain 3953 (=CIP 80-28 =ATCC 29909 =Bottone 48 =Chester 48). It has been found in fish,[2] and contains several biotypes.[3] It is not considered of clinical relevance, being isolated from humans in a routine manner.[4]
