Two methylamine- and -dimethylformamide-utilizing spp. are described. These bacteria are gram-negative, nonsporeforming, nonmotile, coccoid or short rod-shaped organisms. Their DNA base composition is 62 to 68 mol% G+C. Their cellular fatty acids include large amounts of C acid. Their major hydroxy acids are 3-OH C and 3-OH C acids. The major ubiquinone is Q-10. These bacteria are distinguished from and by physiological characteristics and by DNA-DNA homology. sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed. The type strain of is DM-15 (= JCM 7686), and the type strain of is DM-82 (= JCM 7685). is distinguished from other species on the basis of cellular fatty acid composition, hydroxy fatty acid composition, and DNA-DNA homology. It may not be a valid member of the genus .
