Alicyclobacillus Wisotzkey et al. 1992, gen. nov. (Type genus of the family ¤ Alicyclobacillaceae da Costa and Rainey 2010).
Type species: ¤ Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius (Darland and Brock 1971) Wisotzkey et al. 1992.
Etymology: Gr. adj. aliphos, fat; Gr. n. kuklos, circle; L. masc. n. bacillus, a little staff, rod; N.L. masc. n. Alicyclobacillus, small rod containing circular fatty acids (ω-alicyclic fatty acids).
Valid publication: WISOTZKEY (J.D.), JURTSHUK Jr. (P.), FOX (G.E.), DEINHARD (G.) and PORALLA (K.): Comparative sequence analyses on the 16S rRNA (rDNA) of Bacillus acidocaldarius, Bacillus acidoterrestris, and Bacillus cycloheptanicus and proposal for creation of a new genus, Alicyclobacillus gen. nov.

Note: Albuquerque et al. have isolated four acidophilic, slightly thermophilic or thermophilic Gram-positive strains (strains FR-3, FR-6, FR-1b and FR-11) from solfataric soil at Furnas on the Island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that these organisms represented two novel species of the genus Alicyclobacillus Wisotzkey et al. 1992. Based on the distinct biochemical and chemotaxonomic characteristics, the name ¤ Alicyclobacillus hesperidum Albuquerque et al. 2000 is proposed for the species represented by strains FR-11 and FR-1b. The isolates FR-3 and FR-6 cannot be distinguished from the type strain of ¤ Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius (Darland and Brock 1971) Wisotzkey et al. 1992. So, a formal name for this new genomic species ("Alicyclobacillus genomic species 1") is not proposed.

Validation List no. 84 in IJSEM Online

Note: According to Rules 27(3) and 30, Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius subsp. rittmannii Nicolaus et al. 2002 is not validly published because, at the time of publication, the type strain was not deposited in two publicly accessible service collections in different countries. According to the Judicial Opinion 81, authors or this name, or other scientists who wish to have this name validly published, should submit evidence of the deposit of the type strain in additional collections to the List Editor (either directly or via the IJSEM Editorial Office) before the next meeting of the Judicial Commission in Sapporo, Japan, in 2011. After that time, the name will be ruled not to have been validly published. If, after that deadline, the authors or other scientists wish to have this name validly published, this may be done by confirming that the name is in accordance with the requirements of the Code and either by requesting valid publication via the Validation Lists or by inclusion of the proposal in an original article in the IJSEM. The details of valid publication will then make reference to those publications. If authors or other scientists feel that an exception should be granted to Rule 30, requiring deposit of the type in two different collections in two different countries, they should contact the Editorial Office of the IJSEM.
