It is proposed that the facultatively anaerobic, gram-negative organism described by Eiken (1958) and named by him be transferred to a new genus, which the authors name Organisms of this kind form a fairly homogeneous group and differ in important respects from the generally accepted species and from the members of the currently recognized genera of the family , wherein the genus is placed. An up-dated description of the type species, (Eiken) comb, n. (basionym: Eiken 1958), is given. The type strain of this species, previously designated by Henriksen, is Henriksen's strain 333/54-55 (ATCC 23834; NCTC 10596), one of the strains originally studied by Eiken.
