Abstract

DNA-DNA hybridization studies (with the S1 nuclease method [J. L. Johnson, Methods Microbiol. 18:33-74, 1985]) were performed on members of the genus ATCC 8501showed 88 and 79% DNA homology with JCM 3722and JCM 3723, respectively, while JCM 3722showed 81 and 82% DNA homology with ATCC 8501and JCM 3723, respectively. These genetic data and their similar phenotypic characteristics suggest that (Eggerth and Gagnon 1933) Moore and Holdeman 1969 and (ex Prévot 1940) Shinjo et al. 1990 belong to a single species. We propose, therefore, that strains JCM 3722 and JCM 3723 of be transferred to the species
