¤ Bradyrhizobium Jordan 1982.

Note: Ramírez-Bahena et al. 2013 propose to transfer ¤ Agromonas oligotrophica Ohta and Hattori 1985 (the type species of the genus Agromonas) to the genus ¤ Bradyrhizobium as ¤ Bradyrhizobium oligotrophicum (Ohta and Hattori 1985) Ramírez-Bahena et al. 2013, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Agromonas to ¤ Bradyrhizobium.
