Note: According to phylogenetic properties and the close relationship in physiological and chemotaxonomic features, the genera Microbacterium and ¤ Aureobacterium should be unified. The name Microbacterium must be chosen for the emended genus (Principle 6, Rule 44) and the genus ¤ Aureobacterium is synonymous with the genus Microbacterium (Rule 24a). So, Microbacterium is an earlier heterotypic synonym of ¤ Aureobacterium Collins et al. 1983.
