Note: M.W. Beijerinck [1] published the name "Bacillus agglomerans" in 1888. W.H. Ewing and M.A. Fife [2] changed the name to Enterobacter agglomerans in 1972 as a new combination, acknowledging that Beijerinck had been the original author and making the new full name: Enterobacter agglomerans (Beijerinck 1888) Ewing and Fife 1972. However, the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names omitted Beijerinck from the name in 1980 and listed only Ewing and Fife as the authors [3]. In 1989, Gavini et al. proposed the new combination Pantoea agglomerans (Ewing and Fife 1972) Gavini et al. 1989. In 2004, Edwards et al. [4] request that Beijerinck be acknowledged as the original author of this species by having his name reinstated in its full name Pantotea agglomerans (Beijerinck 1888) Gavini et al. 1989.
