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.
