The type strain of Chlorobium chlorovibrioides Gorlenko et al. 1974 (Approved Lists 1980), DSM 1377 has been lost, but a new isolate, UdG 6026, was assigned to this species. Imhoff (2003) suggests that the strain UdG 6026 may qualify as the neotype strain and this author suggests the new combination "Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" (Gorlenko et al. 1974) Imhoff 2003 (the protologue incorrectly gives "Chlorobacterium chlorovibrioides" Gorlenko et al. 1974 as basonym). However, the author does not propose a formal validation of "Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" and this name appears in quotation marks. "Chlorobaculum chlorovibrioides" (Gorlenko et al. 1974) Imhoff 2003 is listed in this file for completeness.Publication:
