Leclercia

(le-clār'cē-a),
A genus in the family Enterobacteriaceae that resembles the genus Escherichia, but is separable by metabolic and genetic classification. Isolated from the feces of humans and animals, it has been recovered clinically from blood, feces, sputum, urine, and wounds; its degree of pathogenicity is unclear.
