Some species which can use methanol as a sole carbon source were studied by performing chemotaxonomic tests; we determined the ubiquinone systems of these organisms, their DNA base compositions, their electrophoretic karyotypes, and their DNA relatedness values. The type strains of and had similar DNA base compositions and exhibited 90% DNA relatedness. All and strains had DNA G+C contents of 30.8 to 31.0 mol%, and these organisms exhibited 87 to 101% DNA relatedness to the type strain of . We propose that and should be synonyms of and , respectively.
