The genus Chromobacterium, belonging to the class Beta-proteobacteria and family Chromobacteriaceae (formerly Neisseriaceae) [1], was originally proposed in 1881 by Bergonzini [2].
Because of the improved culture methods (8,9) and sensitive nucleic acid amplification assays (NAAAs) (10-14) developed in recent years, Kingella kingae, a gram-negative coccobacillus of the Neisseriaceae family, is increasingly recognized as an invasive pathogen of early childhood.
kingae was most related to members of the family Neisseriaceae, though it was distinct from previously identified members of that family (13).
The family Neisseriaceae contains several genera isolated from water samples, including Aquaspirillium (freshwater under aerobic to microaerophilic conditions), lodobacter (running water, lakes, and sediments), Prolinoborus (pond water), and Vogella (freshwater) (Tonjum 2005).

Members of genus Acinetobacter are Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore forming encapsulated coccobacilli belonging to family Neisseriaceae. It is an opportunistic pathogen found to be associated with a wide spectrum of infections including nosocomial pneumonia, meningitis, endocarditis, skin and soft tissue infections, urinary tract infections, conjunctivitis, burn wound infections and bacteraemia (4).

Chromobacterium, Eikenella, Kingella, Neisseria, Simonsiella, and Vitreoscilla species comprise a major branch of the beta group Proteobacteria by 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid sequence comparison: transfer of Eikenella and Simonsiella to the family Neisseriaceae (emend.).
