Abstract

The group encompasses the taxa subsp. , , , , , , subsp. , , , and . In this study, the taxonomic relatedness between the species , and was investigated. Sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA gene and the gene for DNA gyrase subunit B () confirmed the very high similarities between these three type strains and a reference strain of (>99 and >97 %, respectively). DNA–DNA hybridization experiments revealed high relatedness values between the type strains of , and and between these strains and a reference strain of (83–98 %). Based on these molecular taxonomic data and the lack of phenotypic distinctive characteristics, and should be reclassified as later heterotypic synonyms of .
