None of the reference strains fits the descriptions in the original publications. It appears that the wrong strains were deposited in Major Culture Collections. This is a substantial case for declaring Corynebacterium striatum a nomen dubium (Rule 56a). However, if a careful search reveals a strain or strains used in the original description agreeing in its characteristics, then a neotype strain can be proposed (Rule 18c).Publication:
