Abstract

The bacterial genus belongs to the family and comprises 15 species. Species of the genus are usually identified by their phenotypic characteristics. Thus, it is essential to establish a complete phenotypic classification for all speciesof the genus . The species was proposed in 2008, based on 16S rRNA, , , and gene sequences and some distinguishing phenotypic characteristics. In this study, four strains classified as based on the sequencing of the loci mentioned above were subjected to a more detailed phenotypic characterization. This characterization revealed differences in the results of four tests previously reported as diagnostic for and the results of 18 additional tests provided new information about the biochemical diversity of this species. In the light of the results of the phenotypic characteristics of the four strains of , an emended description of is presented.
