Abstract

Twenty-three strains of the seven recognized species were studied by using optical hybridization. The level of error in the data was low. Our results supported the results of Rocourt et al. (J. Rocourt, F. Grimont, P. A. D. Grimont, and H. P. R. Seeliger, Curr. Microbiol. 7:383-388, 1982), although there was some overlap between and . We suggest that there may be more than one cluster in the species or the species may form a large spectrum of relatedness. The level of intraspecies homology in is very broad, as determined in both this study and other studies.
