A critical study of the present state of the classification of vibrio-like, curved, microaerophilic bacteria was made. The species originally described under the namesVibrio coli Doyle, V. jejuni Jones et al.V. sputorum Prévot, and V. bubulus Florent are transferred to the genus Campylobacter Sebald and Véron 1963. The authors suggest that the type species of this genus, C. fetus, be divided into two subspecies: C. fetus subsp. fetus (Smith and Taylor) comb. nov. (syn. V. fetus subsp. intestinalis Florent), which contains the neotype strain of the species, and C. fetus subsp. venerealis (Florent) comb. nov. The previously described subspecies V. fetus subsp. intermedius Elazhari is regarded as an infrasubspecific taxon with the name C. fetus subsp. venerealis biotype intermedius. CIP 5396 (= ATCC 27374 = NCTC 10842) is proposed as the neotype strain of C. fetus subsp. fetus. This strain, then, is also the neotype strain of C. fetus (Smith and Taylor) Sebald and Véron.
