The names used (Skerman et al., 1980) have all been approved and published since 1980 in the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology (Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol.) and since 2000 in the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol.)
If the strain has not yet been validated or published in the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology, the Latin name assigned to the strain is placed in inverted commas.
