Desulfotomaculumthermobenzoicum subsp. thermosyntrophicum is the correct name if this subspecies is regarded as a separate subspecies (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another subspecies whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate species Desulfotomaculumthermobenzoicum within a separate genus Desulfotomaculum.
According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published because the effective publication only documents deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Desulfotomaculum thermobenzoicum subsp. thermosyntrophicum Plugge et al. 2002 is to be considered to be validly published.Publication:
