“Burkholderia dabaoshanensis” was described in 2012. Although the name was effectively published, it could not be validly published, because the description provided in the original paper did not comply with the Rule 27 (2) (c) of the Bacterial Code. The Code requiresthat the properties of the taxon form part of the protologue. As the name of this species does not have standing in nomenclature, the recently published new combination Trinickia dabaoshanensis could also not be validly published. The current proposal attempts to rectify the situation by providing the information required to meet the criteria stipulated in Rule 27 for valid publication.
