Kerstersia gyiorum Coenye et al. 2003, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain API 184-2-84 = CCUG 47000 = LMG 5906.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AY131213.
Etymology: Gr. n. gyion, limb; N.L. gen. n. gyiorum, from the limbs, referring to the fact that the majority of strains were isolated from human leg wounds.

Kerstersia similis Vandamme et al. 2012, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain CCUG 46999 = LMG 5890.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AY131212.
Etymology: L. fem. adj. similis, similar, resembling, as strains of the species biochemically resemble strains of Kerstersia gyiorum.
