Note: Tuskamura [1] proposed rejection of the name Nocardia farcinica as a nomen dubium because some strains bearing this name were members of the genus Mycobacterium. However, Chamoiseau [2] has already established two species, Mycobacterium senegalense (Approved Lists 1980) and Mycobacterium farcinogenes (Approved Lists 1980), to accomodate the farcy-associates strains of mycobacteria, thus eliminationg this source of confusion. Therefore the Judicial Commission voted to deny the action proposed [3, 4].

Validation List no. 98 in IJSEM Online

Note: The original spelling, Nocardia senatus (sic), has been corrected on validation according to Rule 61. In the effective publication the etymology is as follows: N.L. gen. n. senatus referring to the colony color of ochre-yellow of the Nocardia. However, the genitive noun senatus means of the Senate (the supreme council in Rome). Consequently, with the authors' agreement, the specific epithet has been changed to sienata.
