Abstract

The 16S rRNA sequences of , and were determined by direct RNA sequencing, using a modified Sanger method. Sequence comparisons indicated that these three species represent a novel family in the gamma division of . On the basis of these data, and cannot retain their current generic status as they are not closely related to other members of their assigned genera. Therefore, we propose transfer of to the new genus as and transfer of to the new genus and assign the genera , and to a new family, , in the gamma division of .
