Abstract

The genus is represented by four species, with three of them showing phylogenetic divergence compared to the type species, . Differences in the major diagnostic properties such as internal photosynthetic membranes, quinones, fatty acids, carotenoid composition and a few other phenotypic properties warrant the reclassification of members of this genus. Resultantly, a new genus, gen. nov., is proposed based on the analysis of nine strains to accommodate , and as comb. nov., comb. nov. and comb. nov., respectively. The type species of the genus is comb. nov. An emended description of the genus is also proposed.
