Streptococcusintestinalis 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 Streptococcus.
Given the congruence between whole cell protein electrophoreis and percentage of DNA-DNA hybridization, these data suggest that Streptococcus alactolyticus Farrow et al. 1985 is an earlier synonym of Streptococcus intestinalis Robinson et al. 1988 [1, 3].Publication:
