Serratiaproteamaculans subsp. quinovora 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 Serratiaproteamaculans within a separate genus Serratia.
The subspecific epithet quinovora (sic) has been corrected in the new combination Serratia quinivorans [see, Serratia quinivorans corrig. (Grimont et al. 1983) Ashelford et al. 2002, comb. nov.]. However the name "Serratia proteamaculans subsp. quinivorans" corrig. has never been formally proposed before December 14, 2000 (date of publication of the amended Rule 61; see Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2000, 50, page 2239, column 2). Consequently, in the "List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature", the subspecific epithet quinovora (sic) has been maintained for Serratia proteamaculans subsp. quinovora.Publication:
