1887

Abstract

The name Metchnikoff 1888 is used for two quite different kinds of bacteria. We request that the Judicial Commission issue an Opinion to the effect that the name be used only for the sort of bacterial parasite or endosymbiont described by Metchnikoff from the body cavities of cladoceran invertebrates belonging to the family The name should not be used for an organism quite different from that described by Metchnikoff, ATCC 27377, a member of morphotype IV of the group of budding and non-prosthecately appendaged bacteria, for which we propose the name sp. nov. We further recommend that relevant alterations be made in connection with the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names and culture collection catalogs.
