The type strain of Photobacterium histaminum, JCM 8968T (= ATCC 51805T), and that of Photobacterium damselae subsp. damselae, ATCC 33539T, exhibit 100% identity in their 16S rRNA sequence, more than 80% DNA-DNA homology and only one phenotypic difference. Also, like P. histaminum, P. damselae subsp. damselae was shown to excrete a large amount of histamine when cells were grown on medium containing excessive histidine under acidic conditions. Therefore, the name P. histaminum should be considered to be a later subjective synonym of P. damselae subsp. damselae.
