Comparison of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genomic properties of the type strains of and indicates that these taxa are members of the same species. The conclusion is based upon 16S rDNA similarity of 99·9% [Rainey, F. A., . (1997). 47, 510--514], DNA-DNA reassociation of 95%, identical fatty acid patterns and almost identical physiological reactions against substrates provided by the BIOLOG plate. According to Rule 42 of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria, which requires that the oldest legitimate epithet be retained when taxa of equal rank are united, (Flügge 1886) has priority over (Brooks and Murray 1981).
