Abstract

The name of the species is validly published but its type strain DSM 44499 shares high similarity based on 16S rRNA gene sequences with DSM 44369 and DSM 44215. These three species obviously build up a distinct cluster within the genus . In the present paper, data from the literature concerning the three species were reviewed and the genetic similarity of DSM 44499 and DSM 44369 was further investigated by DNA–DNA-hybridization experiments, revealing approximately 80 % DNA–DNA relatedness. Even though the two type strains could be differentiated by automated ribotyping, it is proposed that, according to the rules of priority, is a later synonym of .
