Note: The IAM number (IAM 15170) cited in the original publication is associated with a collection that had ceased to operate prior to publication of the paper. The JCM has accessed many of the IAM strains. IAM 15170 was accessed as JCM 12762. The IAM number is, therefore not cited in Validation List 137.
