¤ Thermoanaerobacter Wiegel and Ljungdahl 1982.

Note: Collins et al. 1994 propose to transfer ¤ Acetogenium kivui Leigh and Wolfe 1983 (the type species of the genus Acetogenium) to the genus ¤ Thermoanaerobacter as ¤ Thermoanaerobacter kivui (Leigh and Wolfe 1983) Collins et al. 1994, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Acetogenium to ¤ Thermoanaerobacter.
