Different types of studies have shown that does not belong in the genus . Ribonucleic acid sequencing has indicated that might belong in the genus , but we describe five major groups of taxonomic features of the genus that differ markedly from those of , including ultrastructure and morphology, cellular fatty acids, menaquinones, growth characteristics, and enzyme capabilities, indicating that should not be included in the genus . Thus, we propose the establishment of a new genus, should be transferred to this genus as comb. nov., and NCTC 11637 (= ATCC 43504) is the type strain. The gastric spiral organism from ferrets has been elevated recently from subsp. to . We describe the similarities and differences between and compared with other campylobacters, and we propose that should be included in the new genus as comb. nov. (type strain, ATCC 43772).
