A numerical analysis of phenotypic characteristics showed that Streptomyces reticuliscabiei Bouchek-Mechiche et al. 2000 and Streptomyces turgidiscabies Miyajima et al. 1998 belong to the same cluster and share almost all morphological and biochemical traits that are important in the identification of Streptomyces species. DNA-DNA hybridization and phylogenetic comparisons of 16S rRNA gene sequences confirm that the two species are genomically closely related. In contrast, pathological data showed that Streptomyces turgidiscabies and Streptomyces reticuliscabiei cause two distinct diseases. For the pathologist, the fusion of Streptomyces reticuliscabiei and Streptomyces turgidiscabies under a single species denomination would cause confusion of separate diseases and create a discrepancy between taxonomists and pathologists. Therefore, Bouchek-Mechiche et al. think that the two groups should continue to carry their current denominations, i.e. Streptomyces reticuliscabiei Bouchek-Mechiche et al. 2000 for the strains inducing netted scab and Streptomyces turgidiscabies Miyajima et al. 1998 for those causing common scab.Publication:
