Abstract

Use of inadequate methods for classification of bacteria in the so-called Harveyi clade (family , ) has led to incorrect assignment of strains and proliferation of synonymous species. In order to resolve taxonomic ambiguities within the Harveyi clade and to test usefulness of whole genome sequence data for classification of , draft genome sequences of 12 strains were determined and analysed. The sequencing included type strains of seven species: NBRC 104589, NBRC 104587, NBRC 15634, LMG 21460, NBRC 15631, LMG 25398, and LMG 25443. Draft genome sequences of strain LMG 25430, previously designated the type strain of [], and two strains (MWB 21 and 090810c) from the ’ lineage were also determined. Whole genomes of two additional strains (ATCC 25919 and 200612B) that previously could not be assigned to any Harveyi clade species were also sequenced. Analysis of the genome sequence data revealed a clear case of synonymy between and [], confirming an earlier proposal to synonymize both species. Both strains from the ’ lineage were classified as , while the strains ATCC 25919 and 200612B were classified as and , respectively. We also found that two strains, AND4 and Ex25, are closely related to Harveyi clade bacteria, but could not be assigned to any species of the family . The use of whole genome sequence data for the taxonomic classification of the Harveyi clade bacteria and other members of the family is also discussed.
