Species of the genus Prosthecomicrobium are noted for their numerous cellular appendages or prosthecae that extend from the cells. This investigation confirms that the genus is polyphyletic based on an extensive analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences of several named species of the genus. The analyses indicate that some Prosthecomicrobium species are more closely related to non-prosthecate genera, including Devosia, Labrenzia, Blastochloris, Methylosinus, Mesorhizobium and Kaistia, than they… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Devosia confluentis sp. nov., isolated from the junction between the ocean and a freshwater lake, and reclassification of two Vasilyevaea species as Devosia enhydra comb. nov. and Devosia mishustinii comb. nov.
TLDR
Strain HJR-2T (=KCTC 52211T=NBRC 112271T) is considered to be the type strain of a novel species of the genus Devosia, for which the name Devosiaconfluentis nov. is proposed.
Lutibaculum baratangense gen. nov., sp. nov., a proteobacterium isolated from a mud volcano.
TLDR
Phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics suggest that strain AMV1(T) is a representative of a novel species of a new genus, for which the name Lutibaculum baratangense gen. nov. is proposed.
Methyloterrigena soli gen. nov., sp. nov., a methanol-utilizing bacterium isolated from chloroethylene-contaminated soil.
TLDR
A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, short rod-shaped and motile bacterial strain, isolated from a soil sample contaminated with chloroethylene compounds, represents a novel species of a new genus within the family Hyphomicrobiaceae, for which the name Methyloterrigena soli gen. nov. is proposed.
Siculibacillus lacustris gen. nov., sp. nov., a new rosette-forming bacterium isolated from a freshwater crater lake (Lake St. Ana, Romania).
TLDR
On the basis of the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular data, strain SA-279T is considered to represent a new genus and species within the family Ancalomicrobiaceae, for which the name Siculibacillus lacustris gen. nov., sp.
Devosia humi sp. nov., isolated from soil of a Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) garden.
TLDR
The combined phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data showed that strain THG-MM1T represents a novel species of the genus Devosia, for which the nameDevosia humi sp.
Youhaiella tibetensis gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from subsurface sediment.
TLDR
Based on the phenotypic, phylogenetic and genotypic data, strain fig4(T) is considered to represent a novel species of a new genus in the family Hyphomicrobiaceae, for which the name Youhaiella tibetensis gen. nov. is proposed.
Analysis of 1,000+ Type-Strain Genomes Substantially Improves Taxonomic Classification of Alphaproteobacteria
TLDR
Draft genome sequences of a collection of genomes of more than 1000 Alphaproteobacteria and outgroup type strains were used to infer phylogenetic trees from genome-scale data using the principles drawn from phylogenetic systematics, and the majority of taxa were found to be monophyletic.
Paradevosia shaoguanensis gen. nov., sp. nov., Isolated from a Coking Wastewater
TLDR
Strain J5-3T is considered to represent a novel species of a novel genus within the family Hyphomicrobiaceae, for which the name Paradevosia shaoguanensis gen. nov. is proposed.
Polar growth in the Alphaproteobacterial order Rhizobiales
TLDR
It is found that unipolar growth is an ancestral and conserved trait among the Rhizobiales, which includes important mutualists and pathogens of plants and animals.
Correction for “ Polar growth in the Alphaproteobacterial order Rhizobiales

Prosthecomicrobium hirschii, a New Species in a Redefined Genus
TLDR
The generic description is modified to include a greater variety of prosthecal types and the budding form of division, which is a property of all previously described species and the new species of Prosthecomicrobium emend.
Description of Devosia neptuniae sp. nov. that nodulates and fixes nitrogen in symbiosis with Neptunia natans, an aquatic legume from India.

Assignment of this new taxon represents the fourth example in the literature of a non-rhizobial genus of bacteria capable of forming a bonafide dinitrogen-fixing root-nodule symbiosis with legume plants, which is named Devosia neptuniae sp.
Prosthecomicrobium litoralum, a New Species from Marine Habitats
TLDR
Three strains of multiply appendaged prosthecate bacteria have been isolated and a new species, Prosthecomicrobium litoralum, is proposed, which is consistent with their being indigenous to marine environments.
Prosthecomicrobium and Ancalomicrobium: New Prosthecate Freshwater Bacteria
TLDR
The term prostheca is proposed for the rigid appendages of procaryotic cells bounded by the cell wall, and is defined to include the structures on these new bacteria, as well as the stalks of the caulobacters and thehyphae of the hyphomicrobia.
Kaistia adipata gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel alpha-proteobacterium.
TLDR
A taxonomic study was carried out on Chj404T, a bacterial strain isolated from a soil sample collected in an industrial stream near the Chung-Ju industrial complex in Korea, which showed a clear affiliation of this bacterium to alpha-Proteobacteria.

On the basis of the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain DS-56(T) represents a novel species of the genus Devosia, for which the nameDevosia insulae sp.
The Genera Prosthecomicrobium and Ancalomicrobium
TLDR
Multiple-appendaged bacteria were first reported in nature when samples from soils and aquatic habitats were examined with the electron microscope and isolates of Prosthecomicrobium and AncalomicroBium have been obtained primarily from freshwater environments.

TLDR
Genomic DNA-DNA hybridization assays showed that R. viridis and R. sulfoviridis were closely related but were different species, and the genus Blastochloris gen. nov is proposed to accommodate these BChl b-producing species of phototrophic bacteria.
