Notes:
1 Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (Hugh 1981) Palleroni and Bradbury 1993, ¤ Pseudomonas hibiscicola Moniz 1963 (Approved Lists 1980) and ¤ Pseudomonas beteli corrig. (Ragunathan 1928) Savulescu 1947 (Approved Lists 1980) are heterotypic synonyms [1]. Singer et al. 1994 (cited by Young et al. 1996 [2]) suggest that the type strain of Pseudomonas hibiscola and the type strain of Pseudomonas beteli (corrig.) are members of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. However, according to the Bacteriological Code (1990 revision) the specific epithet beteli (corrig.) has priority.
