Abstract

(MacLean, Liebow & Rosenberg) differs to such an extent from the type species of (Lehmann & Neumann), that it should be removed from this genus. Chemical and numerical phenetic data indicate that is a distinct taxon worthy of generic status. A new genus, , is described for the species (MacLean, Liebow & Rosenberg) nov.rev., comb.nov. The genus is tentatively placed within the coryneform group of bacteria. The type species of the genus is and the type strain is ATCC 9345.
