and were recently described as novel species, and both were reported to be closely related to 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 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, should be reclassified as a later heterotypic synonym of
