Abstract

The relatedness of and was investigated using phenotypic methods and DNA–DNA hybridization. Conventional biochemical tests did not differentiate between the two taxa. DNA–DNA hybridization experiments revealed high values for relatedness between the type strains of these species and suggest that these two taxa constitute a single species. Strains previously identified as should be reclassified as , with the name as a later heterotypic synonym of .
