A carboxydotrophic bacterium, isolated from a soil sample in Seoul, was classified initially as Acinetobacter sp. strain JC1 DSM 3803. Chemotaxanomic properties, analysis of the 16s rDNA sequence, fatty acid content, and molecular phylogenetic analysis based on rpoB gene, however, suggested that this bacterium belongs to the genus, Mycobacterium. On the basis of this evidence, it is proposed that Acinetobacter sp. strain JC1 DSM 3803 be reclassified as Mycobacterium sp. strain JC1 DSM 3803.
