Abstract

The genus was recently redefined to include only the type species and closely related taxa. Most other species that were previously designated have been reclassified in new genera. The taxonomic position of (Holdeman, Cato, and Moore) has remained incertae sedis. On the basis of biochemical, chemical and comparative 16S rRNA sequence analyses, this species shares a high degree of similarity with members of the genus We therefore formally propose that (Holdeman, Cato, and Moore) be reclassified in the genus , as comb. nov.
