DNA-rRNA hybridization results showed that members of the genus , members of the genus and their relatives, members of the genus , the false neisseriae, and two misnamed strains constitute a separate genotypic cluster. A new family, , is proposed to accommodate these organisms. The genus is the type genus. Within the two main groups can be distinguished. One group includes the species. The other group can be subdivided in four subgroups consisting of (i) the authentic moraxellae (, and two misnamed strains), (ii) the generically misnamed taxon , (iii) the generically misnamed taxon , and (iv) the generically misnamed taxon , and allied organisms. The cluster belongs to the class and is a member of superfamily II, which includes the authentic pseudomonads and related organisms. It is not related to the family .
