homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
Sinorhizobiumkummerowiae 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 Sinorhizobium.
According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published, because the original publication makes reference to the deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Sinorhizobium kummerowiae Wei et al. 2002 is considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.Publication:

In the summary the type strain is erroneously cited as CCBAU 71042 = AS 1.3045.Publication:
