Fusobacterium nucleatum subsp._vincentii (HMT-200)
Taxon Description:
Note: This cluster of sequences includes the sequence for the type strain of Fusobacterium naviforme. The taxonomy and phylogeny of the Fusobacterium nucleatum subspecies and related Fusobacterium periodontium and Fusobacterium naviforme is not well defined. The 16S rRNA sequence information is probably not reliable for putting strains into valid Fusobacterium nucleatum subspecies.
