Abstract

Ten Gram-positive strains that degraded dibenzofuran belonged to one homogeneous cluster with common biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties. The strains included the previously described strains [ sp.] DPO 360 and DPO 1361 and were isolated from different locations in central Europe. They all shared menaquinone MK-8(H) and -diaminopimelic acid in the cell wall and showed the same cellular fatty acid, polar lipid and RiboPrint patterns. Chemotaxonomic properties, as well as DNA G+C content (72·8 mol%), were consistent with those described for the genus . Analysis of 16S rDNA sequences suggested a close relationship to and . DNA–DNA hybridization of two dibenzofuran-degrading strains (DPO 360 and DPO 1361) and the type strains of and revealed that these strains belong to the same species. An emended description of the species is given. is a later heterotypic synonym of
