Bacillus aerius sp. nov., Bacillus aerophilus sp. nov., Bacillus stratosphericus sp. nov. and Bacillus altitudinis sp. nov., isolated from cryogenic tubes used for collecting air samples from high altitudes.

Currently the type strain of Bacillus aerius is not available. Dunlap 2015 requested the Judicial Commission to examine the status of the name Bacillus aerius Shivaji et al. 2006 (Request for an Opinion, Int J Syst Evol Microbiol. 65, 2341). Another Request for an Opinion on this matter was published a little later by Liu et al. 2015 (Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 65, 3228–3232).
The type strain 24K is no longer viable in the depositor's collection, the type strain JCM 13348 does not appear in the "JCM on-line catalogue of strains", and the MTCC may not provide the type strain MTCC 7303. The type strain cannot be found in another culture collection. So, to date (January 15, 2010), the type strain of Bacillus aerius is not available. — Dobritsa AP. Personal communication, 2010-01-15.
