Abstract

In this paper, the taxonomy of the genus is discussed, from its first description in 1947 to the present state. Emphasis is given to intrageneric phylogeny and chemotaxonomic characteristics, concentrating on quinone systems, peptidoglycan compositions and polar lipid profiles. Internal groups within the genus indicated from homogeneous chemotaxonomic traits and corresponding to phylogenetic grouping and/or high 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities are highlighted. Furthermore, polar lipid profiles and quinone systems of selected species are shown, filling some gaps concerning these chemotaxonomic traits. Based on phylogenetic groupings, 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities and homogeneity in peptidoglycan types, quinone systems and polar lipid profiles, a description of the genus and an emended description of are provided. Furthermore, reclassifications of selected species of the genus into novel genera are proposed, namely gen. nov. (nine species), gen. nov. (six species), gen. nov. (two species), gen. nov. (six species) and gen. nov. (ten species).
