According to An and Yokota, the type strain of Leifsonia rubra does not exist in any established culture collection or with the authors who described this species. Therefore, it cannot be included in any scientific study. The authors propose that the Judicial Commission places the name Leifsonia rubra on the list of rejected names if a suitable type strain is not found or a neotype is not proposed within two years following the publication of this Request for an Opinion. Opinion 96 did not reject the name but urged that a alternative type-strain deposits are established.Publication:

After the Request for an Opinion by An and Yokota, the original authors deposited the type strain in the BCCM/LMG culture collection (LMG accession number 24410) [1, 2]. According to the LMG, the strain LMG 24410 is authentic . The culture, whose authenticity was confirmed by 16S rRNA gene sequencing by the JCM, was also deposited in JCM as JCM 15064 . — Kämpfer P.
