Abstract

The present study was carried out to clarify the taxonomic relationship between two closely related species, Li . 2002 and (ex Boyer 1973) Nielsen 1995. The maximum-likelihood tree based on the 16S rRNA gene sequence and the phylogenomic tree based on concatenation of 16 protein-marker genes showed that these species were similar. Average nucleotide identity (ANIm 99.25 %, ANIb 98.2 %) and digital DNA–DNA hybridization values (93.5 %) between DSM 13666 and DSM 497 were greater than the threshold values for bacterial species delineation, indicating that they belong to the same species. Therefore, Li 2002 should be reclassified as a later heterotypic synonym of (ex Boyer 1973) Nielsen 1995.
