Based on phenotypic properties, 16S rRNA gene sequence and MALDI-TOF analysis, the strains DSM 15084 and CIP 107628, deposited as the type strain of Bacillus aeolius, do not represent the original type strain, strain 4-1. The two collections have attempted to obtain a subculture of the original strain from the depositor, but the strain is no longer available in the depositor's laboratory. It is therefore proposed that the Judicial Comission of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes places the name Bacillus aeolius on the list of "Rejected specific and subspecific epithets in names of species and subspecies of bacteria (Epitheta specifica et subspecifica rejicienda)" if a suitable replacement for the type strain or a neotype cannot be found within 2 years of publication of this Request. As yet this request is provisional.Publication:
