Abstract

This study examined 49 field isolates of the genus , with the 49 being allocated to 36 epidemiologically unrelated groups and one isolate from each group being examined in detail. In addition, six type and reference strains were investigated. Phylogenetic analysis of partially sequenced , , , and genes confirmed the existence of the species , while a species complex encompassing , , , and sp. A could not be resolved. All isolates shared at least one identical sequence in one gene, indicating low diversity or horizontal gene transfer (HGT) between isolates. Such HGT between isolates of defined species and unclassified isolates combined with high sequence similarity can be explained as the result of an ongoing speciation process. The alternative explanation is that , and sp. A were misclassified originally. Except for , identification of species of seems problematic, even by DNA sequencing, as shown in the present investigation. The results indicate that probably contains only two or three species. Until the taxonomic revision is completed we recommend that isolates that do not fit with named species by genotype and phenotype be designated sp.
