The inclusion of “” Hugh 1981 in the genus as (Hugh 1981) Swings et al. 1983 is questioned in view of the significant differences between these two taxa. This reclassification is not acceptable if practical means of differentiation in this genus are considered. The proposed alteration of the description of the genus is also questionable because of the implications for everyday phytobacteriology.
