Abstract

The species is reclassified as corrig., comb. nov. on the basis of morphological and physiological traits, phylogenetic position and chemotaxonomic properties. Characteristics supplementary to those provided in the original description reveal that the type strain, DSM 13351 (=ATCC 700205), forms oval, subterminal to terminal spores, possesses -diaminopimelic acid and contains MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone, while the whole-cell methanolysate contains even-carbon, straight-chain saturated and mono-unsaturated fatty acids and 1,1-dimethylacetals as major components. DNA–DNA reassociation values below 30 % for DSM 765 and DSM 13257 demonstrate that strain DSM 13351 shows sufficient genomic differences to maintain its species status. Lack of motility, a smaller cell diameter and the ability to use malate and glycerol as electron donors and fumarate and arsenate as electron acceptors are the main properties that differentiate from the other two species of the genus.
