Jordan et al. 1982
Jordan FTW, Erno H, Cottew GS, Hinz KH, Stipkovits L. Characterization and taxonomic description of five mycoplasma serovars (serotypes) of avian origin and their elevation to species rank and further evaluation of the taxonomic status of Mycoplasma synoviae. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 1982; 32:108-115.
Mycoplasmasynoviae 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 Mycoplasma.
The full TRBA 466 classification is: risk group = 2, note = "t".
