Abstract

The only characters currently used to distinguish and from are the inability of the first species to oxidize sulfur or thiosulfate and of the second to use thiosulfate. These differences are demonstrated to be invalid inasmuch as all three species can grow on either sulfur or thiosulfate. The names and are therefore regarded as later, subjective synonyms of
