 Klebsiella mobilis
Nine species have been described within genus Klebsiella. K. mobilis belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae and is closely related to members of the genus Citrobacter. In fact, members of the genus Klebsiella and Citrobacter freundii form a monophyletic cluster (see Fig. 224:1 to the left).
Comment:Enterobacter aerogenes and Klebsiella mobilis are so-called homotypic synonyms, but the bacterium is most similar to species within the genus Klebsiella and this genus name is, therefore, used on VetBact.
