Abstract

A new mesophilic strain of , strain FE, was highly purified from the sludge of an anaerobic digester after enrichment on sodium acetate and is described. Strain FE was compared with other strains of strain Opfikon (= DSM 2139) (T = type strain) and strain GP6 (= DSM 3671). The differences within the strains were mainly related to their requirement for yeast extract. The three strains were found to be similar in their deoxyribonucleic acid guanine-plus-cytosine contents (50.2 to 52.6 mol%) and showed 100% deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid homology. For these reasons we propose to recognize synonymy, reject the name Patel 1985, 35:223, and assign this organism to the species Huser, Wuhrmann and Zehnder 1983, 33:439.
