Abstract

Acinetobacter lactucae and Acinetobacter dijkshoorniae were recently described as novel species, and both were reported to be closely related to Acinetobacter pittii . Because they were reviewed and published almost concurrently, their descriptions did not include a specific comparison between these two novel species. Genomic data were provided in both initial descriptions, which simplifies the comparisons. Genome comparisons based on in silico DNA–DNA hybridizations, average nucleotide identity and core genome phylogeny of the type strain genomes establish that these strains are conspecific. Based on the rules of priority, A. dijkshoorniae should be reclassified as a later heterotypic synonym of A. lactucae .
