Abstract

The original type strains of and recorded in the eighth edition of published in 1974 were NCIB 9042 and ATCC 4720, respectively. However, in the list of the valid names of bacteria compiled in 1980, both strains were changed, NCIB 9042 to ATCC 19358 and ATCC 4720 to ATCC 23308. These changes were unjustified, particularly in the case of whose type strain was replaced by another strain from the same collection, although the original type strain ATCC 4720 was never lost and it is currently available in several culture collections. Therefore, we request that the type strain of be corrected from ATCC 23308 to ATCC 4720.
