© 2015 IUMS. Synonymy of Gibbsiella dentisursi DSM 23818T (=NUM 1720T) and Gibbsiella papilionis JCM 18389T (=LEN33T) was suspected following multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) of both type strains in a previous classification study, where they were found to share >99.6% gene sequence similarity. The taxonomic relationship between these two strains was re-examined here using a polyphasic approach. A DNA-DNA hybridization value of 98% confirmed that the two type strains belong to a single taxon, while the phenotypic profiles were found to be nearly identical. Therefore we propose Gibbsiella papilionis as a later heterotypic synonym of Gibbsiella dentisursi, with the type strain as NUM 1720T (=DSM 23818T=JCM 17201T).
