Abstract

The type strain of strain DSM 20665 (= ATCC 27854), was found to be so closely related to strains of that we propose that this misclassified taxon should be removed from the genus and reclassified as a strain of . Our conclusion is based on the results of a comparative analysis of the chemotaxonomic properties of the organism, including the amino acid composition of the peptidoglycan, the mycolic acid composition, and the fatty acid composition, the very similar physiological properties and 16S ribosomal DNA sequences, and the results of DNA-DNA reassociation experiments performed by the renaturation rate method.
