Abstract

An outline of the current taxonomic diversity of the genus is presented. A definitive summary is given of the valid type strains of and and of culture collection strains that can be assigned to these species. The case is established for a critical reassessment of the strains held by international culture collections, to ensure that they are assigned to the correct species.
