On the basis of genotypic, chemotaxonomic, and phenotypic data, was excluded from the emended genus . In the present study, the known heterogeneity within this species was examined by a polyphasic approach that included DNA-rRNA hybridizations, a determination of DNA base ratios, DNA-DNA hybridizations, a numerical analysis of whole-cell protein patterns, a determination of cellular fatty acid compositions, and a phenotypic analysis. All of the methods revealed the presence of two distinct species. We propose that strains should be placed in a new genus, the genus , which comprises two species, comb. nov. and sp. nov.
