Abstract

During our previous studies we reclassified and a number of misclassified ruminococci into a novel genus within the family . However, the Rules of the Bacteriological Code currently require that the types of all species and subspecies with new names (including new combinations) be deposited in two different collections in two different countries. The type strain of was, at that period in time, only deposited in the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) and a second independent deposit, as required by the Code, was not available. Consequently, the transfer of this species to the genus could not be made, because the resulting species name would not conform to the Rules governing the valid publication of species names and deposit of type material (Rules 27 and 30) and consequently would not be considered to be validly published. This resulted in a nomenclatural and taxonomic anomaly with being phylogenetically placed among members of the genus with 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of between 91.8 and 96.6 %. In order to rectify this unsatisfactory situation, through our discussions with the ATCC, the deposit of strain ATCC 29174 to the DSMZ as strain number DSM 25238 was completed. Hence, the transfer of to the genus comb. nov. is now proposed. The type strain is ATCC 29174 ( = DSM 25238 = KCTC 15206).
