Note: According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published because the effective publication makes no reference to the deposit of the type strain in any publicly accessible service collection, but deposits in at least two recognized culture collections in different countries are documented. According to the Judicial Opinion 81, Propionivibrio pelophilus (Meijer et al. 1999) Brune et al. 2002 is to be considered to be validly published.
