Determination of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of ATCC 15264 (T = type strain) confirmed that this species is a member of the alpha subclass of the and showed that it is phylogenetically most closely related to the group comprising the species , and , for which 16S rRNA sequences of the type strains are currently available. The closest known relative of strain ATCC 15264 among these species is (level of direct pairwise sequence similarity, 95%). On the basis of its previously determined 16S rRNA sequence (accession number M83797), is most closely related to in the alpha-4 subgroup (level of similarity, 97.7%). Analysis of the hydroxy fatty acids of ATCC 15264 showed that the 2-hydroxymyristic acid which is characteristic of the genus was absent.
