In the July 1998 issue of the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology, the union of the genera Microbacterium and Aureobacterium in a redefined genus Microbacterium Orla-Jensen 1919 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Takeuchi and Hatano 1998 has been validly published .Publication:

The name Aureobacterium resistens Funke et al. 1998 has been effectively published in 1998  and validly published in the April 1998 issue of the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology . Of course, this name was not included in the study by Takeuchi and Hatano 1998 .Publication:

Thereafter, the new combination Microbacterium resistens was proposed by Behrendt et al. 2001 .Publication:
