Abstract

Rule 24b of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes regulates the priority of names that are considered to be heterotypic synonyms. However, the rule is imperfect because it caters only for names that compete for priority that were only included on the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names or for names that were only validly published in the or the , either in an original article or via the Validation Lists. Although this should be self-explanatory, Rule 24b does not cater for what happens when one or more names considered to be heterotypic synonyms have appeared on the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names while other names also considered to be heterotypic synonyms were validly published in the or the , either in an original article or via the Validation Lists. Formal changes to the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes are required.
