Abstract

The taxonomic positions of three representative strains of (LMG 17719, LMG 21416 and LMG 21538) were investigated by means of 16S rDNA sequences and phenotypic data. strains (GenBank/EMBL accession nos AJ514909–AJ514911) shared 99·5 % 16S rDNA sequence similarity, but had only 94·6 % similarity to their closest phylogenetic neighbour, . 16S rDNA sequence similarity of and was only 91 %. These results suggest that should be placed into a novel genus, for which the name gen. nov. is proposed.
