heterotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP, conserved name
According to Wieme et al. (2012), this species is a later heterotypic synonym of Pediococcusacidilactici Lindner 1887 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Wieme A, Cleenwerck I, Van Landschoot A, Vandamme P. Pediococcus lolii DSM 19927T and JCM 15055T are strains of Pediococcus acidilactici. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2012; 62:3105-3108.
Pediococcuslolii 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 Pediococcus.
The phylogenomic assignment score of this taxon is 0.01930 (N = 21).
However, these authors also indicate that the question of whether Pediococcus lolii and Pediococcus acidilactici are to be treated as heterotypic synonyms depends on the availability of biological material corresponding with the original description of Pediococcus lolii by Doi et al. 2009 .Publication:
Doi K, Nishizaki Y, Fujino Y, Ohshima T, Ohmomo S, Ogata S. Pediococcus lolii sp. nov., isolated from ryegrass silage. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2009; 59:1007-1010.
It would appear that type material of Pediococcus lolii corresponding with the data published by Doi et al. (2009) is currently not available from culture collections . — Tindall BJ. Personal communication, 2013-02-18.
