The ribosomal L30 proteins from strains of 27 species belonging to the genera , , , , and were analysed, together with AT-L30 proteins from selected actinomycetes. The results of partial amino acid sequencing of L30 preparations revealed that the members of the genera , and were homogeneous within each genus. In contrast, phylogenetic diversity existed in the genus , which contained at least four clusters. One cluster that contained and was more closely related to the genus than to members of the other three clusters. Members of the genus were most closely related to the ‘ cluster’, but less related to the other three clusters. A distant phylogenetic relationship was detected between the genus and its morphological relative,
