The purpose of this announcement is to effect the valid publication of the following new names and new combinations under the procedure described previously [ (3), iv (1977)]. Authors and other individuals wishing to have new names and/or combinations included in future lists should send (i) for confirmation that all of the other requirements for valid publication have been met (ii) confirmation of deposition and availability of type strains from two recognized culture collections in different countries. It should be noted that the date of valid publication of these new names and combinations is the date of publication of this list, not the date of the original publication of the names and combinations. The authors of the new names and combinations are as given below, and these authors' names will be included in the author index of the present issue and in the volume author index. Inclusion of a name on these lists validates the name and thereby makes it available in bacteriological nomenclature. The inclusion of a name on this list is not to be construed as taxonomic acceptance of the taxon to which the name is applied. Indeed, some of these names may, in time, be shown to be synonyms, or the organisms may be transferred to another genus, thus necessitating the creation of a new combination.
