Based on phenotypic properties, 16S rRNA gene sequence and MALDI-TOF analysis, strains DSM 15084 and CIP 107628, deposited as the type strain of , do not represent the original type strain, strain 4-1. It is therefore proposed that the Judicial Commission of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes places the name on the list of rejected specific and subspecific epithets in names of species and subspecies of bacteria if a suitable replacement for the type strain or a neotype cannot be found within 2 years of publication of this Request.
