Abstract

The Judicial Commission has been requested (10) to issue an Opinion conserving the name Chester. None of the strains on which the original description of this organism were based appears to be extant, and therefore strain SSC 1336 (=ATCC 25291) is here designated as the neotype strain of Chester. This strain was isolated from lesions of a hen and promptly deposited in the American Type Culture Collection for long-term preservation. It belongs to serotype 2, conforms to the current description of the species, and has the approval of the International Subcommittee on the Taxonomy of Mycobacteria for designation as the neotype strain. A description of the neotype strain is given.
