Note: Based on the 16S rDNA sequence, SDS-PAGE, AFLP fingerprinting and biochemical data, the strain R-5199 (isolated from garden soil by Parsons et al. [1]) clearly is an another species of the genus Pandoraea Coenye et al. 2000. Coenye et al. [2] do not propose a formal name for this strain, pending the availability of similar isolates.
