The draft genome sequence of Sphingomonas paucimobilis host index number (HER) 1398, host of the giant PAU phage isolated from silk moths (Bombyx mori), indicates that this isolate belongs within the genus Sphingobacterium. We suggest that Sphingomonas paucimobilis strain HER1398 be reclassified as Sphingobacterium paucimobilis strain HER1398.
