This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Edwardisella"; "Edwardsiclla"; "Edwardsiela"; "Edwardsielta"; "Edwardsietla"; "Edwardsrella"; "Edwardviella"; "Edwarsiella".
The phylogenomic assignment score of this taxon is 0.03902 (N = 4).
The authority of the taxon name (Ewing and McWhorter) deliberately differs from the authors of the publication (Ewing et al.).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: DSM: 7; CCUG: 5; NCTC: 4; JCM: 4; ATCC: 4; LMG: 2; NCCB: 2; NCIMB: 1; MCCC: 1.
Edwardsiella Ewing and McWhorter 1965 (Approved Lists 1980) is a later homonym of a genus name with standing in the zoological (animal) nomenclature: Edwardsiella Andres, 1883. Principle 2 of the 2008 Code is not retroactive, so the name does not contravene the Code because of this homonymy. — Crook M. Personal communication, 2021-08-19.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "EDWL" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
