The type strain of subsp. (ATCC 393) exhibits low levels of DNA homology with other strains of subsp. (8 to 46%) and strains of (30 to 50%), but exhibits a level of DNA similarity of 80% with ATCC 15820, the original type strain of “ Kuznetsov 1959. Strains ATCC 393 (T = type strain) and ATCC 15820 are members of one protein profile cluster that is separate from the other spp. The randomly amplified polymorphic DNA PCR profile of strain ATCC 393 is also different from the profiles obtained for the other species. ATCC 334 is genetically closely related to subsp. strains (71 to 97%) and strains (71 to 91%), is a member of the same protein profile cluster as these organisms, and shares several DNA amplicons with strains. On the basis of these results, we propose that subsp. ATCC 393 ATCC 15820 should be reclassified as members of nom. rev. (type strain, ATCC 15820), that strain ATCC 334 should be designated the neotype strain of subsp. , and that the name should be rejected.
