Abstract

Reclassification of the species as comb. nov. is proposed on the basis of physiological traits and phylogenetic position. Characteristics additional to those provided in the original description revealed that the type strain (strain K1=ATCC BAA-34=JCM 14045) has the ability to use Fe(III) as an electron acceptor for acetate oxidation and has an electron donor and acceptor profile typical of a species, contains abundant -type cytochromes, and has a temperature optimum of 30 °C and a pH optimum near pH 7.0; traits typical of members of the genus . Phylogenetic analysis of , , , , and 16S rRNA genes further indicated that falls within the cluster of the family . Based on extensive phylogenetic evidence and the fact that has the hallmark physiological characteristics of a species, should be reclassified as a member of the genus .
