Emendation accompanied by a proposal regarding the synonymy of the species.
According to Mordarski et al. (1980), this species is an earlier heterotypic synonym of "Serratiacorallina" Bergey et al. 1923.Publication:

Rhodococcusrubropertinctus 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 Rhodococcus.
The specific epithet rubropertinctus (sic) has been corrected in the new combination Gordonia rubripertincta [see, Gordonia rubripertincta corrig. (Hefferan 1904) Stackebrandt et al. 1989, comb. nov.]. However the name "Rhodococcus rubripertinctus" corrig. has never been formally proposed before December 14, 2000 (date of publication of the amended Rule 61; see Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2000, 50, page 2239, column 2). Consequently, in the "List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature", the epithet rubropertinctus (sic) has been maintained for Rhodococcus rubropertinctus.Publication:

On the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names, this nomenclatural name is incorrectly cited as Rhodococcus rubropertinctus (Hefferan 1904) Goodfellow and Alderson 1979 (sic).Publication:
