Bernard KA, Pacheco AL, Burdz T, Wiebe D, Huynh C, Bonner C, German GJ, Bernier AM. Brevibacterium massiliense (Roux and Raoult 2009) is a later heterotypic synonym of Brevibacterium ravenspurgense (Mages, Frodl, Bernard and Funke 2009), using whole-genome sequence analysis as a comparative tool. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2016; 66:4440-4444.
Brevibacteriummassiliense 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 Brevibacterium.
