Abstract

Our phylogenetic analysis based on 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences and chemotaxonomic analyses showed that ATCC 13260, ATCC 19565, and ATCC 19566 are more closely related to the genus , especially , than to the genus ATCC 13260 and ATCC 19565 and ATCC 19566 exhibited levels of 16S rDNA similarity of 99.4 and 100%, respectively, to DSM 43066. Strains ATCC 13260, ATCC 19565, and ATCC 19566 had diaminopimelic acid in their peptidoglycan and MK-8(H) as their predominant menaquinone. These three strains produced cellular fatty acid patterns similar to those of strains rather than those of species. Therefore, . ATCC 13260, ATCC 19565, and ATCC 19566 should be reclassified as strains of Gray and Thornton 1928.
