Chemotaxonomic, electron microscopic and 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses of the three described species of the genus demonstrated only remote similarities to each other. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities between and and the derived phylogenetic relationships of the three specie studied fell below genus level. All three species clustered within the phyletic group. Each species showed a distinct phospholipid pattern and whole-cell fatty acid distribution. Several isoprenologues of the lipoquinone ‘lipid F’ were found to differ in their quantitative distribution in the species. On the basis of these results, the new genera gen. nov. and gen. nov. are proposed. The type species of is comb. nov., and the type species of is [corrig.] comb. nov. The genus is consequently restricted to a single species, namely [corrig.].
