Abstract

was published in the in June 2012. was published in in 2016 and validated in November 2020. In the present study, the relationship between and was re-evaluated. In the 16S rRNA gene phylogeny, was closely related to and . The type strains of and shared 99.8 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, 98.5 % sequence similarity, 99.9 % sequence similarity, 98.7 % average nucleotide identity (ANI) value and 88.9 % digital DNA–DNA hybridization (dDDH) value, indicating that they represent the same species. Meanwhile, although the type strains of and also shared 99.8 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, 97.1 % sequence similarity and 99.6 % sequence similarity, 94.7 % ANI and 59.1 % dDDH values indicated that they represent two different species. On the basis of the results present here, we propose Ren . 2020 as a later heterotypic synonym of Morandi . 2012.
