Notes:
1 Cellvibrio japonicus Humphry et al. 2003 was previously known as "Pseudomonas fluorescens subsp. cellulosa" (Ueda et al. 1952) NCIMB 10462 or as "Pseudomonas cellulosa" Dees et al. 1995.
2 According to Rules 27(3) and 30, Cellvibrio japonicus Humphry et al. 2003 is not validly published because, at the time of publication, the type strain was not deposited in two publicly accessible service collections in different countries [1]. In a Request for an Opinion, Euzéby and Tindall provide a solution whereby this name may be considered to be validly published [2].
