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.
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:
