Abstract

In 1973, five new species and two new subspecies of the genus Ehrenberg 1832 were described by Terasaki (Bull. Suzugamine Women's Coll. Nat. Sci. 17:1-71, 1973). In the same year, Hylemon et al. (P. B. Hylemon, J. S. Wells, Jr., N. R. Krieg, and H. W. Jannasch, Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 23:340-380, 1973) proposed that the genus be divided into three genera: , and . Accordingly, on the basis of the original and subsequently determined characters of the various new species and subspecies, the following transfers from the genus are proposed. Terasaki, subsp. Terasaki, and subsp. Terasaki are transferred to the genus as (Terasaki) comb. nov., subsp. (Terasaki) comb. nov., and subsp. (Terasaki) comb. nov., respectively. The type strains for these taxa are IFO 13611, IFO 13615, and IFO 13617, respectively. The marine species Terasaki, Terasaki, Terasaki, and Terasaki are transferred to the genus as (Terasaki) comb. nov., (Terasaki) comb. nov., (Terasaki) comb. nov., and (Terasaki) comb. nov., respectively. The type strains for these species are IFO 13616, IFO 13612, IFO 13613, and IFO 13614, respectively. Emended descriptions of these species and subspecies are given.
