Abstract

Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences of species currently assigned to the genus has shown extensive intrageneric phylogenetic heterogeneity. It has been shown in previous studies that the species [] , [] and [] were most closely related to . In addition, [] and species of the genus also clustered into this phylogenetic group. Although the similarities of 16S rRNA gene sequences were low (88.5–96.4 %), there is no evidence for clear phenotypic differences between these organisms that justify assignment to different genera. A proposal is made to transfer these species to the genus as comb. nov., comb. nov., comb. nov. and comb. nov. on the basis of phylogenetic and phenotypic data. Furthermore, a novel species is described within this genus, sp. nov., with strain CC-SG1B (=CCUG 52510=CIP 109140) as the type strain.
