1887

Abstract

The primary streptomycete inciting common scab of potato was first legitimately described by Thaxter in 1892 as ‘’, preserving the spelling of an epithet in use since 1846. The name , dating to 1948, was revived in 1989, but changed to in 1997 to follow grammatical convention. Considering the long-established use and general recognition of ‘’, it is proposed that the original epithet be conserved.
