Abstract

The diversity among 43 isolates of the genus was studied by determining levels of deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness (S1 nuclease method) and DNA base compositions. The guanine + cytosine contents ranged from 66 to 75 mol%. At least nine genomic species were differentiated, including three genomic species among strains compatible with members of the genus , five genomic species among strains compatible with members of the family Elaeagnaceae, and one genomic species among strains compatible with members of the genus . Genomic species 1, which contained proposed type strain CpI1 and nine strains that were compatible with members of the genus and were 64 to 97% related to strain ACoN24d, is . Four genomic species contained single strains that were 0 to 30% related to the other genomic species. Typical strains isolated from members of the genus were found to be very homogeneous (69 to 100% related to strain ORS020606) and clearly separated from atypical strains. The nine genomic species delineated in this study cannot be named since no phenotypic tests are available for identification.
