Notes:
1 Olsenella profusa Dewhirst et al. 2001 was previously designated Eubacterium group D52 by W.E.C. and L.V.H Moore.
2 According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published because the effective publication only documents deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Olsenella profusa Dewhirst et al. 2001 is to be considered to be validly published.
