Abstract

Recent investigations of the evolutionary relationships of marine species assigned to the genera (, , , and ) and () are reviewed. Data obtained by a number of different methods indicate that these five species are part of a single evolutionary lineage distinct from their close relatives, the fluorescent pseudomonads, and unrelated to the type species of (). Consequently, all five species are transferred to a new genus, , with designated as the type species. The phenotype properties of . , , , , and are presented, together with the distinguishing traits of these organisms.
