Valid publication: Validation List no. 86. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2002, 52, 1075-1076.

Note: At the time of publication, the type strain was not deposited in two publicly accessible service collections in different countries, and Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans Sanford et al. 2002 was not validly published [Rules 27(3) and 30]. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans Sanford et al. 2002 is now considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.
