Abstract

Recently, two strains of Elbanna . 2003 and an independently isolated bacterium, Manaia . 2003 , were described in parallel as gen. nov., sp. nov. Analysis of the 16S rRNA genes revealed similarity between and the two strains of of 99·8 and 99·6 %, respectively. DNA–DNA hybridization experiments revealed mean DNA reassociation levels of 97–98 % among and the two strains of , thereby confirming the close relationship and indicating that is a later synonym of .
