Abstract

Phylogenetic, chemotaxonomic and metabolic data obtained for indicate that this species is not a member of the genus , but of the genus . Phylogenetically, it is closely related to and , but it can be differentiated from these species by its metabolic properties. It is therefore proposed to reclassify as comb. nov.
