Abstract

The genus Desulfotomaculum is a heterogeneous group of spore-forming sulfate-reducing bacteria. The type species of the genus is Desulfotomaculum nigrificans (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Visser et al. 2014. The results of phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that the genus Desulfotomaculum already has lost the clustering monophyly and was segregated into some distinct groups with low sequence similarity. Major features of the type strains in these groups were compared, and four novel genera, Desulfallas gen. nov., Desulfofundulus gen. nov., Desulfofarcimen gen. nov. and Desulfohalotomaculum gen. nov. were proposed to accommodate species transferred from the genus Desulfotomaculum .
