Abstract

The type strain of was the subject of chemotaxonomic and 16S ribosomal DNA sequencing studies. The resultant nucleotide sequence was aligned with the sequences of representatives of the genera , , , , , , and , and phylogenetic trees were generated by using the Fitch-Margoliash, maximum-parsimony, maximum-likelihood, and neighbor-joining methods. It was evident from the phylogenetic analyses that represents a distinct phyletic line that is most closely associated with the clade. This genealogical evidence, together with chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data derived from this and previous studies, indicates that merits generic status within the family Therefore, we propose that . Blackall et al. 1989 be reclassified as gen. nov., comb. nov. The type strain of cleaved an array of conjugated substrates based on the fluorophores 7-amino-4-methylcoumarin and 4-methylumbelliferone.
