Abstract

Chemotaxonomic and deoxyribonucleic acid homology studies were carried out on various strains to clarify their taxonomic position. The results of the present study indicate that these strains belong to one species, namely, (ex Elliott) nom. rev. Strain NCTC 10234 is proposed as the type strain.
