Abstract

Abstract

The phylogenetic interrelationship of members of the genera and were examined by using reverse transcriptase sequencing of 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid. The sequence studies demonstrated that and represent a coherent phylogenetic group at the genus level, whereas occupies a separate line of descent. On the basis of sequence data and the chemotaxonomic distinctiveness of the latter organism, we propose that be reclassified in a new genus, as comb. nov.
