Abstract

We analysed the taxonomic position of the genus based on phylogenetic, genomic and phenotypic data. The species of the genus were nested within the genus according to the 16S rRNA gene sequence-based phylogenetic tree. The closest neighbour of () strains LMG 4437 and ATCC 68554 ( = strain 775) was LMG 13544, with more than 99.5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Furthermore, () is highly related to . According to average amino acid identity (AAI), multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) and Karlin genome signature, the closest neighbour of ATCC 68554 is LMG 13544, with 95 % AAI, 98 % MLSA and 5 in Karlin. ATCC 68554 and N16961 had 77 % similarity in AAI, 85 % in MLSA and 14 in the Karlin signature. Phenotypic analyses of previously published data for () and () revealed that the genus is extremely similar to the genus . and strains yielded up to 67 % DNA–DNA hybridization. There are only a few phenotypic features that might be used to discriminate these two species: is positive for the Voges–Proskauer reaction, citrate utilization, starch hydrolysis, lipase activity and acid production from glycerol, sorbitol and trehalose, whereas is negative for these traits. We suggest that the genus is a later heterotypic synonym of the genus and propose to use the names and in place of and , respectively.
