Abstract

SUMMARY: A reclassification of the Neisseriaceae is proposed, involving: (1) Inclusion of as a genus of Neisseriaceae. (2) Transfer of , N. ovis and , or, alternatively, creation of a new genus for these species. (3) Unification of the species and under the name (4) Unification of the species and under the name (5) Exclusion of the genera and from Neisseriaceae. The relationships of the organisms and to the Neisseriaceae, if any, have not yet been sufficiently clarified to suggest the inclusion of these organisms in Neisseriaceae. Until this has been studied in more detail, the genus appears to be suitable.
