Can someone give a lay person the answer to why candida milleri yarrow
has been re-named or re-classified candida humilis? This particular
yeast has had about 6 names over it's studied lifetime:

S. exiguus
Torulopsis holmii
(some thing in between here, I've forgotten)
candida milleri yarrow

and now

candida humilis.

what gives?
