Abstract

The 16S rRNA gene sequence of the type strain of the type species of the genus , was determined by PCR direct sequencing. A comparative sequence analysis showed that is phylogenetically related to a small cluster (cluster IV of Collins et al. [M. D. Collins, P. A. Lawson, A. Willems, J. J. Cordoba, J. Fernandez-Garayzabal, P. Garcia, J. Cai, H. Hippe, and J. A. E. Farrow, Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 44:812-826, 1994]) of organisms which includes several and species. was found to be phylogenetically only remotely related to and These findings demonstrate that the genus is not a monophyletic group, and the proposed transfer of and to this genus (T. Ezaki, N. Li, Y. Hashimoto, H. Miura, and H. Yamamoto, Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 44:130-136, 1994) is not supported.
