Abstract

16S rRNA gene sequences of the type strains of 11 species belonging to the and groups were determined. On the basis of the results of gene sequence analyses, these species were separated into two clusters. The cluster included 10 species, namely, , and and belonged to the cluster. Moreover, the two clusters were phylogenetically distinct from other , and species. On the basis of our data, we propose reclassification of the cluster as gen. nov. and reclassification of the cluster as gen. nov. By using 16S rRNA gene sequence alignments, two specific PCR amplification primers were designed for differentiating the two new genera from each other and from other aerobic, endospore-forming organisms.
