Nucleic acid hybridization studies together with a chemical cell wall analysis and physiological data indicated that some strains designated as II, sp. (), and “” I, II, and IV are closely related to the type strain of . These strains contained a directly cross-linked peptidoglycan with lysine as a diamino acid and ribitol and choline as characteristic cell wall constituents. We propose that these strains be classified as members of . An emended description of is given. strains are genetically related to strains, and representatives of both species contain ribitol and choline in their cell walls.
