Abstract

With the description of the genus Sphingorhabdus , the taxonomic position of Sphingopyxis contaminans was re-evaluated based on analyses of 16S rRNA gene sequences and phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics. The results revealed that Sphingopyxis contaminans is clearly a member of the genus Sphingorhabdus and we proposed that Sphingopyxis contaminans (Subhash Y, Sasikala C, Ramana CV. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2014;64:2238–2243) should be reclassified as Sphingorhabdus contaminans comb. nov. An emended description of the genus Sphingorhabdus is also provided.
