Abstract

The results of deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid and deoxyribonucleic acid-ribosomal ribonucleic acid hybridization studies demonstrated that and are distantly related to the non-enterococcal streptococci ( and ) of serological group D and to other streptococci. On the basis of our results and those of previous studies, we propose that and be transferred to the genus (ex Thiercelin and Jouhaud) nom. rev. as (Andrewes and Horder) comb. nov. and (Orla-Jensen) comb. nov., respectively. A description of the genus nom. rev. and emended descriptions of and are given.
