The carbon monoxide-utilizing hydrogen bacterium DSM 1083 ( strain Z-1062), the type strain of , was found to be a monotrichous, nonbudding, rarely screw-sculptured bacterium which did not convert lactose to 3-ketolactose and which was not pathogenic for tomatoes. Because of these properties and its strictly aerobic metabolism, it is proposed that this organism be transferred from the genus to the genus as (Sanjieva and Zavarzin) comb. nov. This species is distinctly different from other CO-utilizing pseudomonads with regard to guanosine plus cytosine content, substrate utilization spectrum, and extent of star formation.
