Notes:
1 According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published, because the original publication makes reference to the deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Asaia siamensis Katsura et al. 2001 is considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.
