Abstract

The taxonomic status of all species of the genus was re-evaluated by comparative genomics based on whole-genome sequencing. From these results it is clear that is a later subjective synonym of . In addition, genome-based analysis revealed the misidentification of isolates previously identified by traditional approaches and indicates the presence of two more species. We propose a more rapid identification scheme on the basis of an PCR assay derived from comparative genomics of whole-genome sequences (WGS) from 29 well-curated strains.
