We determined the 16S rRNA gene sequence of , an intracellular parasite of and related species of crickets. Phylogenetic inferences made from alignment of this sequence with the sequences of other bacteria demonstrated that is most closely related to and species in the γ subclass of the phylum was previously thought to be related to members of the order , but the representatives of this order have been shown to be members of the α1 subclass of the . Our results indicate that should be removed from the order .
