The terminology used by the authors is in line with many other taxonomic studies and does not negatively affect their main results; some improvements may nevertheless be possible. Contrasting the term "chemotaxonomic" with "phenotypic" is not recommended. Whether taxa can have "members" is debatable. See the LPSN phylogeny page for details.Publication:

Regarded as not validly published (Opinion 109). 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).Publication:

The type strain 41KF2a is no longer viable in the depositor's collection, the type strain JCM 13349 does not appear in the "JCM on-line catalogue of strains", and the MTCC may not provide the type strain MTCC 7305. The type strain cannot be found in another culture collection. So, to date (January 15, 2010), the type strain of Bacillus stratosphericus is not available. — Dobritsa AP.
