Abstract

Due to its separate position within the genus in many published phylogenetic trees and its incomplete chemotaxonomic characterization, the type strain of was subjected to analysis of its chemotaxonomic traits including quinone system, polar lipid profile, peptidoglycan structure and fatty acid profile. The fatty acid profile consisted of the major compounds (>10 %) iso-C, anteiso-C and anteiso-C. It showed a quinone system with the predominating menaquinone MK-9(H). Both, fatty acid profile and quinone system are in line with the description of the genus . The peptidoglycan type was -Lys–-Ala–Gly (A11.50) which is unique within the genus and also among species of the genus recently reclassified in the genera and . The polar lipid profile was very complex and unique among the group of taxa in containing relatively high proportions of several unidentified lipids. In conclusion from the phylogenetic position and chemotaxonomic distinguishability from related taxa, the reclassification of in a new genus and species, gen. nov., comb. nov., is proposed. The type strain of the type species is 741 (=CCUG 46407=DSM 21259).
