Abstract

The 16S rRNA gene sequences of eight species, two species, and were determined, and these sequences were compared with the sequences of about 50 representatives of the line of descent in the order . We found that in spite of its current assignment to the family , . branches outside the radiation of this taxon and cannot be considered a member of it. The two species do not cluster separately from species and are more closely related to species than to each other.
