Sphingopyxis Takeuchi et al. 2001, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Sphingopyxis macrogoltabida (Takeuchi et al. 1993) Takeuchi et al. 2001.
Etymology: N.L. n. sphingosinum (from Gr. gen. n. sphingos, of sphinx, and suff.-ine) sphingosine; N.L. pref. sphingo-, pertaining to sphingosine; L. fem. n. pyxis -idis, box, case, container; N.L. fem. n. Sphingopyxis, intended to mean box of sphingolipid-containing life.
Reference: TAKEUCHI (M.), HAMANA (K.) and HIRAISHI (A.): Proposal of the genus Sphingomonas sensu stricto and three new genera, Sphingobium, Novosphingobium and Sphingopyxis, on the basis of phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic analyses. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2001, 51, 1405-1417.

¤ Sphingomonas Yabuuchi et al. 1990 emend. Yabuuchi et al. 2002.

Note: On the basis of phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNA sequences and polyamine profiles, Takeuchi et al. 2001 [1] proposed that the genus Sphingomonas be classified into four genera Sphingomonas Yabuuchi et al. 1990 emend. Takeuchi et al. 2001, ¤ Novosphingobium Takeuchi et al. 2001, ¤ Sphingobium Takeuchi et al. 2001 and ¤ Sphingopyxis Takeuchi et al. 2001. Yabuuchi et al. 2002 [2] found that there is no phenotypic and phylogenetic evidence to support a proposal to split the species into four genera. These authors concluded that the genus Sphingomonas should remain undivided at this time and that the species of genera ¤ Novosphingobium, ¤ Sphingobium and ¤ Sphingopyxis, in conjunction with ¤ Blastomonas ursincola (Yurkov et al. 1997) Hiraishi et al. 2000, should be treated as species of the genus Sphingomonas.
