Abstract

The recent isolation and characterization of two marine strains of are significant for precise definition of this species, which previously was based on a single strain. Polyphasic taxonomic studies showed that this species is not closely related to the only other species, , of the genus . Because cannot be assigned to any other genus, a new genus, , in the family is proposed. We recommend that be transferred to the new genus, with comb. nov. as the type species. The type strain is Raj (= ATCC 25205). Descriptions of the new genus and its species, necessitated by this change, and a key for differentiation from other family members are presented together with an emended description of the genus .
