Methylovorus mays Doronina et al. 2001, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) BV = C = NCIMB 13992 = VKM B-2221.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AY486132.
Etymology: N.L. n. mays (sic), maize, the name of the host plant Zea mays L.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 82. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2001, 51, 1619-1620.

Note: According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published, because the original publication makes reference to the deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Methylovorus mays Doronina et al. 2001 is considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.
