Abstract

The taxonomic status of and was examined, based on their 16S rDNA sequences, DNA–DNA hybridization and other taxonomic characteristics. A phylogenetic analysis using 16S rDNA sequences revealed that the two species belong to the genus . In particular, KCTC 3748 and KCTC 3791 were found to be phylogenetically closely related to YC300 (98·3 % sequence similarity) and WN9 (95·2 % sequence similarity), respectively. DNA–DNA hybridization values between KCTC 3748 and YC300 were less than 26 %. An experiment using -specific PCR primers, PAEN515F and 1377R, revealed that and had the same amplified 16S rDNA fragment as members of the genus . Accordingly, it is proposed that and be transferred to the genus as comb. nov. and comb. nov., respectively.
