Cryptosporangium arvum Tamura et al. 1998, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain YU 629-21 = IFO (now NBRC) 15965 = JCM 10424.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: D85465.
Etymology: L. n. arvum, arable field, cultivated land, pertaining to isolate from arable land.
Reference: TAMURA (T.), HAYAKAWA (M.) and HATANO (K.): A new genus of the order Actinomycetales, Cryptosporangium gen. nov., with descriptions of Cryptosporangium arvum sp. nov. and Cryptosporangium japonicum sp. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1998, 48, 995-1005.

Note: In Latin, arvum can be a noun or an adjective. However, the use of the Latin noun arvum (nominative in apposition meaning "Cryptosprangium called the arable field"), or the use of the Latin neuter adjective arvum (that has been ploughed, but not yet sown, ploughed, arable), do not make sense!

Notes:
1 According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published because the effective publication only documents deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Cryptosporangium aurantiacum (ex Ruan et al. 1976) Tamura and Hatano 2001 is to be considered to be validly published.
