The Judicial Commission rules that the name Mandel 1961 is represented by the type strain ICMP 2608 =ICPB CI144 and is reported to be a plant-pathogenic species. is represented by the type strain DSM 20138 =ATCC 14264 =NCPPB 1228 and is not a homotypic synonym of Mandel 1961, and is reported not to be a plant pathogen. The authorship is to be cited as Collins 1982 and typification and the description of this species are to be found in Collins (1981) [ Collins, M. D., Jones, D. & Kroppenstedt, R. M. (1981). , 318–323 ].
