According to the NCTC, the strain NCTC 3165 (previously the type strain of Streptococcus mitis), is a strain (not the type strain) of Streptococcus gordonii Kilian et al. 1989. — Coykendall 1989 argued that the type strain of Streptococcus mitis, NCTC 3165, is not a representative of the species and proposed that Streptococcus oralis should be considered a later synonym of Streptococcus mitis and that its type strain, NCTC 11427, should become the type strain of Streptococcus mitis. This request has been denied by the Judicial Commission (see: infra).Publication:
