Abstract

The taxonomic positions of the genera and were evaluated by a polyphasic investigation. It was evident from 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis that both genera are closely related as they formed a monophyletic clade with high sequence similarities (96.9–98.2 %). Several properties commonly found in these taxa strongly suggest that they should be classified in the same genus. Further, a comparative study based on DNA–DNA hybridization, phenotypic characterization and chemotaxonomic analysis indicated that the members of this clade, namely , and , can be readily differentiated from each other. On the basis of the polyphasic data obtained in this study, all species of the genus should be transferred to the genus , since the latter has nomenclatural priority. It is therefore proposed that and are transferred to the genus as comb. nov. and comb. nov.
