Shivaji S, Chaturvedi P, Suresh K, Reddy GS, Dutt CB, Wainwright M, Narlikar JV, Bhargava PM. 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. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2006; 56:1465-1473.
Euzeby JP. Notification list. Notification that new names and new combinations have appeared in volume 56, part 7 of the IJSEM. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2006; 56:2251-2252.
As the type strain is not available from any established culture collection, nor from the authors who originally described the species, Branquinho et al. 2015 propose to place the name on the list of rejected names if no replacement is found within two years (Request for an Opinion, Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 65, 1101). The request was supported by Liu et al. 2015 (Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 65, 3228–3232).
The type strain 28K is no longer viable in the depositor's collection, the type strain JCM 13347 does not appear in the "JCM on-line catalogue of strains", and the MTCC may not provide the type strain MTCC 7304. The type strain cannot be found in another culture collection. So, to date (January 15, 2010), the type strain of Bacillus aerophilus is not available. — Dobritsa AP.
