Bacterial strain, T1, originally isolated by P.J. Evans on the basis of its capacity for toluene degradation under denitrifying conditions, has been classified as Thauera aromatica. In a comprehensive study of strains of this species, it was found that the cells have a different type of flagellar insertion from that of cells of the type species of the genus, Thauera selenatis, suggesting the convenience of an emendation of the description of the genus Thauera. Further studies on a larger collection of strains with the above characteristics may serve in the future as the basis for the creation of a new generic designation.
