Abstract

The 16S rDNAs from 38 strains of the genus , two species and were directly sequenced and then analysed. The mean nucleotide similarity value between the type strains of validly described was 96.1±3.0%. The mean nucleotide similarity value between the type strains of validly described and the two was 93.7±1.4%. was distantly related to the genera and . The mean intraspecific nucleotide similarity value of 16S rDNA sequences from was 99.5±0.5%. The mean intraspecific nucleotide similarity of 16S rDNA sequences from was 100%, except for strains ATCC 13260, ATCC 19565 and ATCC 19566, which were shown not to be members of the genus ’ strains IFO 14396 and IFO 14397, and ‘’ JCM 3335 showed a 16S rDNA similarity value of 100% with 9575 and JCM 5854. ‘’ IFO 14399 shared its highest 16S rDNA similarity with sp. 39419 at 99%. ‘’ IFO 14399 and sp. ATCC 39419 formed a phylogenetic lineage distinct from the genera and ’ strains IFO 14335 and IFO 14336 displayed a close relationship to the genus . From 16S rDNA sequence analyses, it is considered that some strains that have been attributed to the genus should be taxonomically re-evaluated.
