Abstract

Sequences of the 16S rDNA from all available type strains of species have been determined and were compared to those of other , a few selected and . The clear separation of and is confirmed. Most significantly the sequence comparison revealed a genetic divergence between species originated from freshwater sources and those of truly marine and halophilic nature. Major phylogenetic branches of the contain (i) marine and halophilic species, (ii) freshwater species together with species and (iii) species of the genera and as recently reclassif ied [Guyoneaud, R. & 6 other authors (1998). 48, 957–964], namely (formerly ). (formerly ), and (formerly ). The genetic relationships between the species and groups are not in congruence with the current classification of the and a reclassification is proposed on the basis of 16S rDNA sequence similarity supported by selected phenotypic properties. The proposed changes include the transfers of and to comb. nov. and comb, nov., of and to the new genus as comb. nov., comb. nov., and comb. nov., of to the new genus as comb, nov., of and to the new genus as comb. nov. and comb, nov., of and to the new genus as comb. nov. and comb, nov., of to gen. nom. rev., of to the new genus as comb, nov., and of to the new genus as comb. nov.
