Sphingomonashistidinilytica 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 Sphingomonas.
The phylogenetic position of this species was determined in a genome-scale analysis by Hördt et al. (2020).Publication:
