Strains currently classified as include strains previously identified as (Prevot 1924) Holdeman and Moore 1974, (Prevot 1925), and (Guthof 1956) because these specific epithets were argued to be later synonyms of (Andrewes and Horder 1906) Smith and Sherman 1938 by Coykendall et al. (Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 37:222–228, 1987). However, recent data from DNA-DNA hybridization experiments, whole-cell-derived polypeptide patterns determined by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and data from phenotypic testing have demonstrated that strains represent three readily identifiable taxa to which the previously assigned type strains of (strain NCDO 2226 [= ATCC 27823], (strain NCDO 2227 [= ATCC 27335], and (strain NCTC 10713 [= ATCC 33397] have been shown to belong. Therefore, we propose recognition of (emend.) (type strain NCDO 2226 [= ATCC 27823]), (emend.) (type strain NCDO 2227 [= ATCC 27335]), and (emend.) (type strain NCTC 10713 [= ATCC 33397]) as distinct species and propose an emended description of each of these taxa.
