homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
Pseudomonasgeniculata 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 Pseudomonas.
According to Ludwig et al. (2021), this "species affiliates away from its type species and may be reclassified as Stenotrophomonas".Publication:
