Abstract A comparative analysis of 16S ribosomal RNA sequences of all Peptostreptococcus species revealed that most members of the genus Peptostreptococcus should be divided into many different genera. The relationship between clostridia and peptostreptococci was analysed to find the phylogenetic position of peptostreptococci.
