Abstract

To clarify the taxonomic relationships of the genera and the 16S rRNA sequence of IFO 15211 (T = type strain) was determined. A phylogenetic analysis of aligned 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that eight species of the genus and are closely related to and and, therefore, belong in the alpha-4 subclass of the Within this subclass, species and are phylogenetically interrelated and comprise several subgroups. Our findings show that the genus and species definitions of these organisms are in need of revision.
