Abstract

Eight strains of facultatively methylotrophic budding bacteria which utilized mono- and trimethylamine as sole carbon and energy source were shown to belong to the complex in rRNA superfamily IV. It is considered that these organisms probably represent a new taxon; a description is provided, and the taxonomy is discussed.
