Abstract

The sphingomonad group contains bacterial isolates that are quite diverse in terms of their phylogenetic, ecological and physiological properties. Thus, the genus was divided into four distinct genera, , , and on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence phylogenetic analysis, signature nucleotides, fatty acid profiles and polyamine patterns and this classification is currently widely accepted. In this study, a complete analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences of all the members of the group of sphingomonads encompassed in the genera , , and was inferred by using tree-making algorithms. [] DSM 6383 was found to form a distinct clade with the members of the genus , whereas [] DSM 15583 forms a clade with the members of the genus . The respective positions of these strains were also supported by the data for signature nucleotides, 2-hydroxy fatty acid profiles, polyamine patterns and the nitrate reduction properties of the strains. We therefore propose the reclassification of [] and [] as comb. nov. (type strain DSM 6383=CIP 107206) and comb. nov. (type strain DSM 15583=KCTC 2884=KCCM 41068), respectively.
