heterotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
Nomenclatural type of the genus Thalassobacter Macián et al. 2005.Publication:
Macian MC, Arahal DR, Garay E, Ludwig W, Schleifer KH, Pujalte MJ. Thalassobacter stenotrophicus gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel marine alpha-proteobacterium isolated from Mediterranean sea water. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2005; 55:105-110.
According to Pujalte et al. (2005), this species is a later heterotypic synonym of Jannaschiacystaugens Adachi et al. 2004.Publication:
Pujalte MJ, Macian MC, Arahal DR, Garay E. Thalassobacter stenotrophicus Macian et al. 2005 is a later synonym of Jannaschia cystaugens Adachi et al. 2004, with emended description of the genus Thalassobacter. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2005; 55:1959-1963.
Thalassobacterstenotrophicus 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 Thalassobacter.
The genome of the type strain was sequenced as part of the GEBA (Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea) project.Publication:
