Abstract

The asaccharolytic, pigmented , and , form a group of relatively homogeneous species which differ markedly in biochemical and chemical properties from the type species of (Castellani and Chalmers), such that they should not be retained within this genus. Therefore, we propose that (Holdeman and Moore) Finegold and Barnes, Coykendall, Kaczmarek and Slots, and van Steenbergen, van Winkelhoff, Mayrand, Grenier and de Graaff be reclassified in a new genus, , as comb. nov., comb. nov., and comb. nov., respectively.
