homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP, distinct rank
Lactobacillusrhamnosus 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 Lactobacillus.
In the paper by Collins et al. 1989, Lactobacillus rhamnosus is proposed as a new species.Publication:
