Breed (Approved Lists, 1980) as Corynebacterium vitarumen (Bechdel et al.) comb. nov. and Brevibacterium liquefaciens Okabayashi and Masuo (Approved Lists, 1980) as Corynebacterium liquefaciens (Okabayashi and Masuo) comb. nov.

The strain ATCC 14929 used by M.A. Lanéelle et al. 1980 (Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1980, 30, 539-546) was mislabeled. With a new copy of the type strain ATCC 14929, the results were unlike those reported by M.A. Lanéelle et al. 1980. The authors, therefore, withdraw all of theirs recommendations for the assignment of Brevibacterium liquefaciens Okabayashi and Masuo (Approved Lists 1980) to the genus Corynebacterium Lehmann and Neumann 1896 (Approved Lists 1980).
