This strain is sufficiently different from the validated type strain (strain 1m [= VKM B-1733]) to be classified in a different species. The proposed establishment of a neotype strain for while the originally designated type strain is extant is in conflict with Rule 18c of the . To avoid all confusion, strain VKM B-1733 should remain the type strain of , and a new species may be proposed to include VKM B-1739 and a number of related isolates.
