Abstract

The genus encompasses five validly described species belonging to the betaproteobacterial class. Recognized for their potential biotechnological uses, they were first described as belonging to the genus . The phylogeny of the 16S rRNA gene of the original strains as well as newly described species led to a description of these strains within a new bacterial genus, . However, the phylogenetic position of this genus remains described as part of the family , even those some authors have placed it within the order . To unravel the precise position of the genus , a wide phylogenomic analysis was performed. The results of 16S rRNA gene phylogeny, as well as those obtained by the multilocus analysis of homologous proteins and overall genome relatedness indices, support the reclassification of in the lineage of the family , so the transfer of this genus is proposed.
