Abstract

The taxonomic positions of six strains (including the type strain) of ( King 1959 ) Vandamme . 1994 and the type strain of Li . 2004 were re-evaluated by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Phylogenetic analysis, based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing, showed that the strains represent a separate lineage from the type strains of the branch within the family (90·7–93·9 % similarities), which was supported by phenotypic differences. Combined phylogenetic and phenotypic data showed that and should be transferred to a new genus, gen. nov., with the names comb. nov. (type strain, ATCC 13253=NCTC 10016=LMG 12279=CCUG 214) and comb. nov. (type strain, DSM 14571=JCM 11413=GTC 862) proposed.
