Abstract

An investigation into the taxonomic position of MTCC 7902 revealed that the strain shares a common phylogenetic lineage with MTCC 10789. It displays considerable overlap in phenotypic properties with the genus , including endospore shape and position, oxidase and catalase activities, presence of iso-C, C 7 alcohol and iso-C 7 as major cellular fatty acids, A4-type cell-wall peptidoglycan, polar lipids and menaquinone pattern. These features reinforce the findings of molecular phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene, gene and 16S–23S internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region sequences and, in line with the recommendations of Kämpfer [ 56 (2006), 781–786], provide justification for the transfer of from the genus to as comb. nov. The type strain is B3W22 ( = MTCC 7902 = DSM 21046 = JCM 13838). An emended description of the genus is also provided.
