Regarded as junior synonym of Serratia proteamaculans(IJSB 28:508) but later revised (Curr. Microbiol. 7:71, 1982); request for conservation denied IJSB 36:577.Publication:

In the "Indexes of the Bacterial and Yeast Nomenclatural Changes", Moore and Moore [7, 8] write "Serratia liquefaciens (Grimes and Hennerty 1931) Bascomb et al. 1971 (AL) = Serratia proteamaculans (Paine and Stansfield 1919) Grimont et al. 1978 (AL)". However, Serratia liquefaciens and Serratia proteamaculans are distinct species.Publication:
