Seven strains of subsp. , reference strains of subsp. subsp. , and , aerotolerant sp. strain 02790, and catalase-negative or weakly catalase-positive strain CG-1 were compared with subsp. type strain NCTC 11000 in deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization experiments. Strain NCTC 11000(T = type strain) showed a high level of deoxyribonucleic acid homology with all of the subsp. strains tested, but no significant homology with any of the other reference strains used, including subsp. and subsp. strains. Based on these observations, we propose that subsp. be reclassified as comb. nov.
