Flavobacterium heparinum was inadequately characterized when it was originally described by Payza and Korn in 1956. As a result it was listed as a species incertae sedis in the 8th edition of The authors isolated a single strain of this organism, and presumably it was this strain which was deposited in the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) under the number 13125 (= National Collection of Industrial Bacteria [NCIB] 9290). Because the original description was based on a single strain, ATCC 13125 is here regarded as the type strain of by monotypy. The results of an extensive study of the morphological, physiological, biochemical, and antimicrobial (lytic) properties of this strain suggest that it is more properly classified in the genus as (Payza and Korn) comb. nov.
