heterotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
According to Huys et al. (2005), this species is a later heterotypic synonym of Aeromonasveronii Hickman-Brenner et al. 1988.Publication:
Huys G, Cnockaert M, Swings J. Aeromonas culicicola Pidiyar et al. 2002 is a later subjective synonym of Aeromonas veronii Hickman-Brenner et al. 1987. Syst Appl Microbiol 2005; 28:604-609.
Aeromonasculicicola is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another species whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate genus Aeromonas.
According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published, because the original publication makes reference to the deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Aeromonas culicicola Pidiyar et al. 2002 is considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.Publication:
