Dunlap CA, Kim SJ, Kwon SW, Rooney AP. Phylogenomic analysis shows that Bacillus amyloliquefaciens subsp. plantarum is a later heterotypic synonym of Bacillus methylotrophicus. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2015; 65:2104-2109.

Emendation accompanied by a proposal regarding the synonymy of the species.
According to Dunlap et al. (2016), this species is a later heterotypic synonym of Bacillusvelezensis Ruiz-García et al. 2005.Publication:
Dunlap CA, Kim SJ, Kwon SW, Rooney AP. Bacillus velezensis is not a later heterotypic synonym of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens; Bacillus methylotrophicus, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens subsp. plantarum and 'Bacillus oryzicola' are later heterotypic synonyms of Bacillus velezensis based on phylogenomics. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2016; 66:1212-1217.
Bacillusmethylotrophicus is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another species whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate genus Bacillus.
