Notes:
1 In the paper by Justé et al. 2012, Tetragenococcus halophilus subsp. halophilus (Mees 1934) Justé et al. 2012 is erroneously cited as Tetragenococcus halophilus subsp. halophilus (Mees 1934) Collins et al. 1993.
2 The IAM number 1676, 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 1676 was accessed as JCM 5888.
