[ DSM 1805 (= ATTC 14820, DSM 50409, ICBP NCIB 9420) has been reinvestigated to clarify its taxonomic position. 16 sequence comparisons demonstrated that this species clusters phylogenetically with species of the genus Investigation fatty acid patterns, polar lipid profiles, polyamine patterns and quinc systems supported this delineation. Substrate utilization profiles and biochemical characteristics displayed no distinct overall similarity to an validly described species of the genus Therefore, the reclassification of [ as comb. nov. is proposed, based upon the estimated phylogenetic positon derived from 16S rRNA gene sequence data, chemotaxonomic data and previously published genomic DNA G+C content data.
