Abstract

Presumably because the name Larkin and Stokes 1967 was considered to be a subjective synonym it was not included on the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names and, therefore, has no standing in bacteriological nomenclature. The low deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness values of 8 to 36% found in the present study between and strains suggested that these two organisms are not closely related genetically. Moreover, the ability of strains to ferment -mannitol, -ribose, trehalose, and -xylose, to reduce nitrate to nitrite, and to grow at 30°C and in 3% NaCl distinguished them phenotypically from strains. Based on the results of this study, revival of the name is proposed. The type strain is strain NRRL NRS-1530.
