Abstract

The 16S rRNA genes of three species of the genus , and ) were sequenced and compared to that of the previously sequenced species . The sequences revealed that was phylogenetically distinct from the other members of the genus and also from other recognized genera of the family . However, and were found to be most closely related to the genera and , respectively. An unidentified haloalkaliphile, strain SSL1, was also closely related to and . On the basis of phylogenetic tree reconstructions, signature bases specific for individual genera, and sequences of spacer regions between 16 and 23S rRNA genes, we propose the following changes: to be transferred to gen. nov. as gen. nov., comb. nov.; to be transferred to the genus as comb. nov.; and to be transferred to the genus as .
