Abstract

was reported to cluster with species of the genus but the peptidoglycan containing lysine, alanine and glutamic acid and the presence of minor amounts of menaquinone MK-8(H) were not in line with the description of the genus. Re-analysis of these traits revealed a peptidoglycan with -Lys–-Ser–-Thr–-Ala and no MK-8(H), but major amounts of MK-9(H) in the quinone system of DSM 25279. These data demonstrate that shares the characteristics of the genus Since the reported quinone systems of [MK-8 and MK-9(H)] and [MK-8(H] were clearly different from those of other species of the genus, the quinone systems of the two species were re-analyzed. Since the polar lipid profile of was reported to contain phosphatidylethanolamine, which is unusual for a member of the , and the polar lipid profile of was unknown, the polar lipids of these two species were also analysed. The quinone system of DSM 18606 was composed of the major menaquinones MK-9(H), MK-8(H) and MK-10(H) and that of DSM 17756 was composed of the major menaquinones MK-9(H) and MK-8(H) and MK-9. In the polar lipid profile of DSM 18606 no phosphatidylethanolamine could be detected. Based on these results we here propose the reclassification of as comb. nov. and emend the descriptions of the genus and the two species and .
