Abstract

Bacterial strain T1, originally isolated by P. J. Evans on the basis of its capacity for toluene degradation under denitrifying conditions, has been classified as . In a comprehensive study of strains of this species, it was found that the cells have a different type of flagellar insertion from that of cells of the type species of the genus, , suggesting the convenience of an emendation of the description of the genus . Further studies on a larger collection of strains with the above characteristics may serve in the future as the basis for the creation of a new generic designation.
