heterotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
According to Saha et al. (2010), this species is a later heterotypic synonym of Pseudomonasoleovorans Lee and Chandler 1941 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Saha R, Sproer C, Beck B, Bagley S. Pseudomonas oleovorans subsp. lubricantis subsp. nov., and reclassification of Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes ATCC 17440T as later synonym of Pseudomonas oleovorans ATCC 8062 T. Curr Microbiol 2010; 60:294-300.
Pseudomonaspseudoalcaligenes 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.
The authority of the taxon name (Stanier) deliberately differs from the authors of the publication (Stanier et al.).
