Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that species with validly published names can be assigned to four clusters or lineages. The type strains of and were differentiated from the type strains of and by the predominant menaquinone and fatty acid profiles. The type strains of and formed lines of descent distinct from other species. KCTC 3667 was distinguishable from the type strains of and by the contents of two fatty acids, iso-C and iso-C. could be distinguished from other species by DNA G+C content and some phenotypic properties, particularly its property of forming a yellow colour. The type strain of was distinguishable from other species by differences in menaquinone profile, major fatty acids, DNA G+C content and some physiological properties including optimal growth temperature. On the basis of these data, the creation of three new genera, , and , is proposed in addition to the genus . The genus gen. nov. is proposed to accommodate and as comb. nov. and comb. nov., the genus gen. nov. is proposed for as comb. nov. and the genus gen. nov. is proposed for as comb. nov.
