Abstract

The characteristics of three species, , and , were examined. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that , and should not be classified as species within the genus . Although , and were phylogenetically related to , the ratios of anteiso-C to iso-C in whole-cell methanolysates of the three species were different from that of . In addition, whereas the major menaquinones of were MK-10 and MK-11, the major menaquinones of , and were MK-9 and MK-10. The three species were phenotypically similar to , but phylogenetically distinct. Furthermore, , and could be differentiated from (predominant menaquinones: MK-10 and MK-11) by the menaquinone composition. This is an important chemotaxonomic characteristic of the three species. On the basis of these data, a novel genus, gen. nov., is proposed for , and , with three species, gen. nov., comb. nov. (the type species), comb. nov. and comb. nov. The type strains of , and are JCM 5825 (=CCUG 4941=DSM 20701=ATCC 8503), JCM 13446 (=CCUG 48944) and JCM 9497 (=CCUG 38734=ATCC 43184), respectively.
