The 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid catalog of CIP 55134 was determined. The results confirmed previous evidence that this organism is not a member of the genus . Whereas is a member of the subdivision of gram-positive bacteria, is phylogenetically related to members of one of the several subbranches of the actinomycetes subdivision, defined by the genera , and and allied taxa. The low similarity coefficients found between and these genera, together with previously described chemotaxonomic properties, indicate that this species should be transferred to a new genus, gen. nov., as comb. nov.
