Abstract

A DNA–DNA hybridization survey was performed on 13 species and two subspecies, dispersed over five genotypically defined clusters as delineated by Lanoot . [ (2004), 84–92] . Within each of the latter clusters, strains shared DNA–DNA relatedness values above 70 %. On the basis of published recommendations, the following eight species with validly published names are considered as later synonyms: as a synonym of ; , subsp. and as synonyms of ; as a synonym of ; as a synonym of ; and , subsp. , subsp. and as synonyms of . Emended descriptions are proposed.
