Abstract

The phylogenetic position of was determined by using reverse transcriptase sequencing of long regions of 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid. formed a distinct group with and but was unrelated to members of the genus . The retention of as a separate genus is unjustified. On the basis of the present analysis and previous chemotaxonomic evidence, we propose that be reclassified in the genus as (Buchanan and Pine) comb. nov.
