1887

Abstract

It is proposed that the type strain of (Thaxter 1892) McCurdy 1971 is ATCC 25946 (=DSM 14877), which was originally designated as a reference strain by McCurdy, and not ATCC 25944, as given in the Approved Lists. Swarm appearance, myxospore morphology and 16S rRNA gene sequence data suggest that ATCC 25946 is a representative of the species , while strain ATCC 25944 is clearly a member of the clade. A Request for an Opinion to this effect is made to the Judicial Commission of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes.
