The phylogeny of bacteria belonging to the genus was investigated by sequencing the whole 16S rRNA gene. The average level of similarity for the three strains examined was high (99.2%), and the similarity level between and sp. strain LL, which represent two different genomic species, was even higher (99.6%). When all of the strains and their phylogenetic neighbors and species were considered, the average similarity level was 98.1%. When complete sequences were used, clustered with the two other strains, while this was not the case when partial sequences were used. The two strains examined exhibited a low similarity level (97.6%) and were not clustered.
