Abstract

The taxonomic status of the species and is briefly summarized and experimental evidence concerning their similarity is presented. Highly similar 16S rRNA gene sequences (99.8 % similarity over 1523 bp), partial gene sequences (99.5 % similarity over 600 bp) and partial gene sequences (99.1 % similarity over 924 bp) suggest that the two species are closely related. Moreover, a high DNA–DNA binding level (87 %) and similar genomic DNA G+C contents (41–44 mol% for both species) as well as similar biochemical characteristics support the evidence that they constitute a single species. Consequently, according to Rules 38 and 42 of the , the name , the oldest legitimate name, must be maintained and the name should be considered a later heterotypic synonym.
