homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
Lactobacillusviridescens 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.
On the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names, this nomenclatural name is incorrectly cited as Lactobacillus viridescens Kandler and Abo-Elnaga 1966 (sic).Publication:
