Note:
In a paper published in the December 1999 issue of the Journal of General and Applied Microbiology, Suzuki et al. [1] proposed the genus Leifsonia Suzuki et al. (type species: Leifsonia aquatica), the species Leifsonia aquatica (ex Leifson 1962) Suzuki et al., Leifsonia naganoensis Suzuki et al., Leifsonia shinshuensis Suzuki et al., and the new combination Leifsonia cynodontis (Davis et al. 1984) Suzuki et al. Hereafter, the authors submit the new names and the new combination for valid publication by inscription in a validation list.
The names ¤ Leifsonia naganoensis Suzuki et al. 2000, ¤ Leifsonia shinshuensis Suzuki et al. 2000, and ¤ Leifsonia cynodontis (Davis et al. 1984) Suzuki et al. 2000 are listed on the Validation List no. 75 (published in the July 2000 issue of the IJSEM). However Leifsonia Suzuki et al. and Leifsonia aquatica (ex Leifson 1962) Suzuki et al. are not included [2] because these names have been already validly published in the January 2000 issue of the IJSEM [3].

Notes:
1 According to An and Yokota, the type strain of Leifsonia rubra does not exist in any established culture collection or with the authors who described this species. Therefore, it cannot be included in any scientific study. The authors propose that the Judicial Commission places the name Leifsonia rubra on the list of rejected names if a suitable type strain is not found or a neotype is not proposed within two years following the publication of this Request for an Opinion.

Notes:
1 In the paper by Evtushenko et al. 2000, the type strain JCM 9733 is erroneously cited as JCM 1376 (the strain JCM 1376 is a strain of ¤ Agromyces mediolanus (ex Mamoli 1939) Suzuki et al. 1996).
2 Leifsonia xyli subsp. cynodontis (Davis et al. 1984) Evtushenko et al. 2000 is an earlier homotypic synonym of ¤ Leifsonia cynodontis (Davis et al. 1984) Suzuki et al. 2000.

Note: According to Suzuki et al. 1999 [1], the type strain (L1A = ATCC 33974= ICMP 7127 = LMG 7352 = NCPPB 3152 = PDDCC 7127) of Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli (Davis et al. 1984) Evtushenko et al. 2000 is no more available from the authors of the species, the NCPPB, the ICMP (= the PDDCC), the ATCC, and the LMG. However, the strain ICMP 7127 seems available from the ICMP [2].
