Abstract

The relatedness of the species and was investigated by comparing partial sequences of the 16S rRNA gene (99·9 % similarity over 1504 bp), the gene (98·8 % similarity over 954 bp) and the gene (98·5 % similarity over 452 bp) and by determining DNA–DNA binding levels (79±3 %) and genomic DNA G+C contents (50 and 49 mol%, respectively). These data, in addition to their similar biochemical characteristics, suggest that the two taxa constitute a single species. According to Rules 38 and 42 of the , they should be united under the name , with the name as a later heterotypic synonym.
