Abstract

DNA-DNA hybridization was used to determine the levels of genomic relatedness of the three species of “false neisseriae,” and The reference strains of these species exhibited high levels of intraspecies relatedness (93 to 100% for 79 to 100% for and 68 to 100% for but low levels of interspecific relatedness (less than 34%) to each other and to various species belonging to the β subclass of the and or to the subclass subsp. subsp. and However, the levels of DNA-DNA hybridization for the three species of “false neisseriae” were significantly higher with the species belonging to the γ subclass (average, 13.7%) than with the species belonging to the β subclass (average, 4.5%). These data suggest that and are three separate genomic species in the γ subclass. An ascendant hierarchical classification based only on fatty acid profiles distinguished four main classes containing (i) most of the “classical moraxellae,” the “false neisseriae,” and (ii) only spp., (iii) and “misnamed moraxellae” ( and and (iv) the “true neisseriae,” the three species, and Fatty acids that distinguish these four classes were identified. The fatty acid profiles of the two strains of which we studied are not very similar to the profiles of the other taxa. Our results support the hypothesis that the three species of “false neisseriae,” the “classical moraxellae,” and spp. should be included in the same family.
