Abstract

The recently described facultatively anaerobic is phylogenetically only moderately related to authentic members of . e is closely related to and slightly less closely related to and (basonym ). Members of the different genera of have similar chemotaxonomic properties; they share the same peptidoglycan type (A4) and have similar profiles of polar lipids, menaquinones, fatty acids and whole cell sugars. However, they differ from each other in the detailed amino acid composition of peptidoglycan, a taxonomically significant character that has previously been used in the delineation of actinobacterial genera. Recognized species and exhibit the -lys–-ala–-Glu type, and show the -lys–-Asp type, whereas has the -lys–-ser–-Glu type. This property, together with the distinct phylogenetic position of , suggests a novel genus for the xylanolytic organism (Cazemier . 2004) gen. nov., comb. nov.
