Abstract

Ribosomal 5SRNA (rRNA) was isolated from 12 strains belonging to the genera and and sequenced. A dendrogram constructed from the data indicated that methylotrophic and non-methylotrophic strains of the genus formed two separate clusters. The non-methylotrophic members of the genus were phylogenetically closer to than to the methylotrophic strains of . The methylotrophic strains of were recovered as a clade with the type strain of . These data support an earlier proposal which reclassified methylotrophic strains of into the genus .
