Abstract

Since was first described in 1980, it has been recognized genotypically as a heterogeneous species, comprising three phenotypically indistinguishable genospecies. In this study, the sequence of the 16S rRNA gene and the concatenated sequences of six housekeeping genes (, , , , and ) of all the currently known species of the genus were used to determine the phylogenetic position of genospecies 2 in the genus . The phylogenetic analyses grouped the genospecies 2 strains in a monophyletic group together with representative strains of . Moreover, the genospecies 2 strains were also grouped apart from the other species of the genus and far from the other two genospecies of . All of the observations made in this study support the conclusion that genospecies 2 should be reclassified as .
