Bacteria Bacterial Vaginosis; An STD or Not!

Hi everyone

I'm confused regarding GARDNERELLA VAGINALIS

in FA page 156: it's says "MOBILUNCUS is also involved"" and "it's not an STD"

what's the connection between mobiluncus and gardnerella?
they say that VAGINOSIS is not an STD ................ but Gradnerella is classified as an STD

can someone explain this please
