Edwardsiella anguillimortifera (Hoshina 1962) Sakazaki and Tamura 1975, species.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) ATCC 15947= CCUG 1638 = CIP 78.61 = DSM 30052 = JCM 1656 = LMG 2793 = NCCB 73021 = NCTC 10396.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AB050827.
Synonym: "Paracolobactrum anguillimortiferum" Hoshina 1962.
Etymology: L. n. anguilla, eel; L. fem. adj. mortifera, death-bringing, death-dealing, deadly, fatal; N.L. fem. adj. anguillimortifera, fatal for eels.

= ¤ Edwardsiella tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980).

Note: Edwardsiella anguillimortifera (Hoshina 1962) Sakazaki and Tamura 1975 (Approved Lists 1980) and ¤ Edwardsiella tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980) have the same type strain and Edwardsiella anguillimortifera (Hoshina 1962) Sakazaki and Tamura 1975 (Approved Lists 1980) is the earlier synonym. However, Farmer et al. 1976 [1] have submitted a Request for an Opinion to conserve the specific epithet tarda over the specific epithet anguillimortifera. No action was taken on the request, because the request has been withdrawn [2]. Consequently, the two names remain homotypic synonyms [3].

Edwardsiella tarda Ewing and McWhorter 1965, species. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) ATCC 15947= CCUG 1638 = CIP 78.61 = DSM 30052 = JCM 1656 = LMG 2793 = NCCB 73021 = NCTC 10396.
