Abstract

The genus was proposed for actinomycetes which closely resembled species in most phenotypic features but lacked a key chemotaxonomic marker, phosphatidylcholine. We sequenced the 16S ribosomal DNA of and found that this organism is very closely related to the genus , which now contains all of the strains formerly classified as members of the genus . In light of these data, we believe that the absence of a single chemical characteristic is not sufficient to justify forming a new genus, and we propose that (Akimov et al. 1989) should be reclassified as . The type strain is strain DSM 43089.
