Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences and chemotaxonomic features of Lochhead 1958 indicated that the bacterium belonged within the genus . IAM 14868 could be distinguished from other species by the presence of 3-hydroxy -diaminopimelic acid in the peptidoglycan and a series of 10-methyl fatty acids. In addition, DNA–DNA relatedness studies indicated that the strain belonged to a genomic species that could be readily distinguished from its nearest neighbours, the type strains of , and . These features support our proposal to reclassify in the genus , as comb. nov. The type strain is IAM 14868 (=NBRC 12959=ATCC 13347=NCIMB 9222). An emended description of the genus is given.
