Abstract

The taxonomic relationship of Lactobacillus fructivorans and Lactobacillus homohiochii was re-evaluated. The type strains of these two species shared 100 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, 100 % pheS gene sequence similarity, 100 % rpoA gene sequence similarity, a 99.8 % ANI (average nucleotide identity) value and a 99.1 % in silico DNA–DNA hybridization value, showing that they have the same taxonomic position. Lactobacillus homohiochii should be reclassified as Lactobacillus fructivorans. Lactobacillus homohiochii is a later heterotypic synonym of Lactobacillus fructivorans.
