Abstract

Edwardsiella tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980) and Edwardsiella anguillimortifera (Hoshina 1962) Sakazaki and Tamura 1975 (Approved Lists 1980) are known to be synonyms that share the same nomenclatural type. Edwardsiella tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980) is the nomenclatural type of the genus Edwardsiella Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980). The question of the priority of the epithet anguillimortifera Hoshina 1962 over the epithet tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 has been raised in the past, and a Request for an Opinion to conserve the epithet tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 in Edwardsiella tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980) was published but later withdrawn. Close examination of the wording of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokayotes indicates that there may be problems associated with the nomenclatural type of Edwardsiella anguillimortifera (Hoshina 1962) Sakazaki and Tamura 1975 (Approved Lists 1980). Additional issues also arise with the recognition of homonyms under other codes of nomenclature.
