The taxonomic relationship between several isolates from the Baltic and reference strains of this species is presented in this study. Results from DNA-DNA hybridization using a newly developed nonradioactive detection system and from 165 rRNA gene sequencing demonstrated that is a species containing more than a single genomic group. The genomic group II was phylogenetically, genotypically and phenotypically distant enough from the species type strain to be classified as a single species within the genus . Therefore, we propose to reclassify Owen's genomic group II as sp. nov. with the type strain NCTC 10735.
