En los ultimos anos, luego de los avances en biologia molecular, hubo una gran re-estructuracion en el orden Rickettsiales y las familias que pertenecen a este orden fueron re-clasificadas asi: de la familia Rickettsiaceae fueron removidas las especies Coxiela burnetii y Rickettsiella grylli y fueron re-ubicadas dentro de la familia Legionellaceae (52, 53), los generos Eperythrozoon sp y Haemobartonella sp se movieron a la familia Mycoplasmataceae (54), y por ultimo, en la familia Anaplasmataceae encontramos en la actualidad los generos Ehrlichia sp y Anaplasma sp (1).
