"Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" (Gorlenko et al. 1974) Imhoff 2003, comb. nov.
Suggested neotype strain: strain UdG 6026.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: Y10649.
Basonym: ¤ Chlorobium chlorovibrioides Gorlenko et al. 1974 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: Gr. adj. chlôros, greenish-yellow, pale green; L. v. vibro, to set in tremulous motion, move to and fro, vibrate; N.L. masc. n. vibrio, that which vibrates, and also a bacterial genus name of bacteria possessing a curved rod shape (Vibrio); L. suff. -oides (from Gr. suff. -eides, from Gr. n. eidos, that which is seen, form, shape, figure), ressembling, similar; N.L. neut. adj. chlorovibrioides, green vibrio-shaped.

Note: The type strain of ¤ Chlorobium chlorovibrioides Gorlenko et al. 1974 (Approved Lists 1980), DSM 1377 has been lost, but a new isolate, UdG 6026, was assigned to this species. Imhof 2003 suggests that the strain UdG 6026 may qualify as the neotype strain and this author suggests the new combination "Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" (Gorlenko et al. 1974) Imhoff 2003. However, the author does not propose a formal validation of "Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" and this name appears in quotation marks. "Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" (Gorlenko et al. 1974) Imhoff 2003 is listed in this file for completeness.

Chlorobaculum limnaeum Imhoff 2003, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) DSM 1677.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AJ290831.
Etymology: Gr. adj. limnaios, of or from the marsh, of water; N.L. neut. adj. limnaeum, living in lakes.
Valid publication: IMHOFF (J.F.): Phylogenetic taxonomy of the family Chlorobiaceae on the basis of 16S rRNA and fmo (Fenna-Matthews-Olson protein) gene sequences. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2003, 53, 941-951.
Original article in IJSEM Online

Note: According to Rules 27(3) and 30, Chlorobaculum limnaeum Imhoff 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. According to the Judicial Opinion 81, authors or this name, or other scientists who wish to have this name validly published, should submit evidence of the deposit of the type strain in additional collections to the List Editor (either directly or via the IJSEM Editorial Office) before the next meeting of the Judicial Commission in Sapporo, Japan, in 2011. After that time, the name will be ruled not to have been validly published. If, after that deadline, the authors or other scientists wish to have this name validly published, this may be done by confirming that the name is in accordance with the requirements of the Code and either by requesting valid publication via the Validation Lists or by inclusion of the proposal in an original article in the IJSEM. The details of valid publication will then make reference to those publications. If authors or other scientists feel that an exception should be granted to Rule 30, requiring deposit of the type in two different collections in two different countries, they should contact the Editorial Office of the IJSEM.
