The accurate taxonomic position of DSW-6 was investigated. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the 16S rRNA gene sequences of the strain studied and of SW256 shared 98.2 % similarity. On the basis of phylogenetic evidence, phenotypic data and DNA–DNA reassociation values, it is proposed that strain DSW-6 be reclassified as comb. nov. Emended descriptions of the genus and of are also proposed.
