In 1973 the author proposed the name for the causal agent of farcy in African bovines. Two varieties (subspecies) of this species were recognized by the author: subsp. and subsp. . Because the former is the type subspecies of the species, its name should have been subsp. farcinogenes. It is now proposed that these subspecies constitute two separate and distinct species: Chamoiseau and (Chamoiseau) comb. nov. IEMVT 75 (= NCTC 10955) and IEMVT 378 (= NCTC 10956) are herein designated the type strains of these two species, respectively.
