Goodfellow and Williams (1983) assigned this genus to the uncategorized "Nocardioform" Goodfellow and Williams 1983.Publication:

For the type species of this genus another name is in use, which is affiliated with the genus Corynebacterium Lehmann and Neumann 1896 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Collins MD. Transfer of Arthrobacter variabilis (Müller) to the genus Corynebacterium, as Corynebacterium variabilis comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 1987; 37:287-288.
This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Caseabacter"; "Caseobacier"; "Caseobucicr".
Caseobacter is the correct name if this genus is regarded as a separate genus (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another genus whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: ATCC: 1; JCM: 1; DSM: 1.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "CEBT" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
