Abstract

DSM 22080 was compared with ATCC 29844 to clarify the taxonomic relationship of both species. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons demonstrated that these species share 99.6 % sequence similarity. Investigation of substrate utilization profiles displayed no striking differences from the type strains of both species. DNA–DNA hybridizations between both strains showed 100 % (99.9 %) similarity. Therefore, the reclassification of as a later synonym of is proposed, based upon the estimated phylogenetic position derived from 16S rRNA gene sequence data, biochemical data and DNA–DNA hybridization results.
