Abstract

Several methanogenic bacteria that utilize methanol, acetate, or me thy lamines have been isolated from marine habitats, including However, the 1984 description by Mah and Kuhn of the genus excludes methylotrophic methanebacteria such as Therefore, we propose to transfer this species to the genus naming it comb. nov. (type strain, DSM 3318 [= ATCC 43330]). Other species having similar properties (e.g., should be assignable to
