Abstract

A polyphasic taxonomic approach was applied to strains of the species and in order to clarify their taxonomic relatedness. Four reference strains, representing both species, and seven strains isolated from human clinical material were characterized by biotyping, ribotyping and SDS-PAGE analysis of whole-cell proteins, and none of the screening approaches allowed the two taxa to be distinguished. DNA–DNA hybridization experiments between four selected representative strains, including the type strains, confirmed that is a later synonym of .
