Synonymy of this taxon was mentioned in an IJSEM list.Publication:

The terminology used by the authors is in line with many other taxonomic studies and does not negatively affect their main results; some improvements may nevertheless be possible. The expression "monophyletic clade" is a pleonasm. The phrase "validly described" is misleading. See the LPSN phylogeny page for details.Publication:

Nocardiacummidelens is the correct name instead 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 Nocardia.
