According to Collins et al. (1993), this species is a later heterotypic synonym of Aeromonasenteropelogenes Schubert et al. 1991.Publication:
Collins MD, Martinez-Murcia AJ, Cai J. Aeromonas enteropelogenes and Aeromonas ichthiosmia are identical to Aeromonas trota and Aeromonas veronii, respectively, as revealed by small-subunit rRNA sequence analysis. Int J Syst Bacteriol 1993; 43:855-856.
The erroneously 'corrected' name "tructi" (IJSB 47:908) has been reinstalled: IJSB 48:615.Publication:

In the reference citation of Aeromonas trota Carnahan et al. 1992 (see: Validation List no. 40), the author's name Chakraborty is erroneously cited as Chakrabarty (sic).Publication:

On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis Aeromonas trota Carnahan et al. 1992 was found identical to Aeromonas enteropelogenes Schubert et al. 1991 .Publication:
Huys G, Denys R, Swings J. DNA-DNA reassociation and phenotypic data indicate synonymy between Aeromonas enteropelogenes Schubert et al. 1990 and Aeromonas trota Carnahan et al. 1991. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2002; 52:1969-1972.
The original spelling of the specific epithet has been corrected by Trüper and De' Clari 1997 to tructi (L. n. tructus i, trout) . However, in the paper by Carnahan et al., the species name is derived both from the Greek adjective "trotos", meaning "vulnerable" and the modern Latin feminine adjective "trota" meaning "vulnerable". The name Aeromonas trota is therefore fully correct .Publication:
