Abstract

Comparison of the hypervariable region (269–279 bases in length) at the 5′ end of the 16S rDNA sequences of 29 bacterial strains that were identified previously as showed that 13 strains clustered with species, eight strains clustered with species and eight strains clustered with species. Based on DNA–DNA hybridization results, 27 strains, not including [] NCIMB 13288 and [] DSM 6472, were reidentified as , , , , , and . [] NCIMB 13288, which was located in the cluster, showed low DNA–DNA relatedness (<14 %) and low 16S rDNA sequence similarity (96·8–97·9 %) to other species. [] DSM 6472, which was located in the cluster, also showed low DNA–DNA relatedness (<12 %) and low 16S rDNA sequence similarity (95·4–98·8 %) to other species. These genotypic and phylogenetic data, plus phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics, suggest that [] NCIMB 13288 (=IAM 15048) and [] DSM 6472 (=NRRL NRS-887) represent novel species of the genera and , respectively, for which the names sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed.
