We propose to maintain the genera and , which are phenotypically similar, as separate genera in the . This separation is supported by the following findings: (i) strains of and were related to ATCC 33320 (T = type strain) at levels of 32 to 36% and 30 to 31%, respectively, as determined by deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness (nitrocellulose filter method at 52.8°C); (ii) the guanine-plus-cytosine ratios of and deoxyribonucleic acids 48 to 50 mol% and 55 to 57 mol%, respectively; and (iii) production of indole and lysine decarboxylase and fermentation of sucrose in 2 days could differentiate from .
