Note: 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, Dorea formicigenerans (Holdeman and Moore 1974) Taras et al. 2002 is to be considered to be validly published.
