Abstract

Because of similarities in the cellular fatty acid compositions of and , we determined the 16S rRNA gene sequences of the type strains of these species to assess their relationship. A very high level of sequence relatedness (approximately 99.8%) was found between and , indicating that these species are genealogically closely related. A comparative sequence analysis revealed that these two species are members of the genus and are phylogenetically remote from (the type species of the genus ), which was found to be a member of the subbranch of the subphylum of the gram-positive bacteria. On the basis of our phylogenetic findings, we propose that should be reclassified as comb. nov.
