I propose that “” be placed in the genus as because it exhibits the following chemotaxonomic properties characteristic of this genus: Whole-cell hydrolysates contain the isomer of diaminopimelic acid, rhamnose and galactose are the characteristic sugars, and mycotic acids are absent. This species is phenotypically different from the type species of (strain NRRL 11239), and deoxyribonucleic acid from the type strain of was determined to be only 10% homologous to deoxyribonucleic acid isolated from NRRL 11239. A description of the species is presented. The type strain is strain NRRL B-3298 (= ISP 5034 = ATCC 23870 = IFO 3837 = Shinobu No. 701).
