[N.B.: List Editors state that the names Clavibacter capsici, Clavibacter insidiosus, Clavibacter nebrasksensis, Clavibacter sepedonicus and Clavibacter tesselarius proposed by Li et al. are illegitimate as they contravene Rule 34a and 50a of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes. The use of illegitimate names contravenes Rule 51a. Counterargument is presented by Tindall (2019).]
