Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that is not a member of the genus , but is related to species of the genus . On a phylogenetic tree, clustered with and , with which it showed the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity level (about 94 %). Phenotypic studies indicated that was also unable to produce acid from lactose, providing further evidence of its affiliation to the genus . DNA hybridization studies indicated that was clearly a separate species, different from and (reassociation levels of about 23 and 54 %, respectively). As suggested in previous studies, is closely related to but clearly distinct from . Based upon properties that taxonomically distinguish it from species of the genus , it is proposed that be transferred to the genus and reclassified as comb. nov. (type strain, 885/78=ATCC 49428=CCUG 29293=CIP 103330=DSM 5634=JCM 8736=LMG 12890=NCTC 12193).
