Allomonas Kalina et al. 1984, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Allomonas enterica Kalina et al. 1984.
Etymology: Gr. adj. allos, another, other, different; Gr. fem. n. monas, unit, monad: N.L. fem. n. Allomonas, a monad or unit in addition to Aeromonas.
Valid publication: KALINA (G.P.), ANTONOV (A.S.), TUROVA (T.P.) and GRAFOVA (T.I.): Allomonas enterica gen. nov., sp. nov.: deoxyribonucleic acid homology between Allomonas and some other members of the Vibrionaceae. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1984, 34, 150-154.

¤ Vibrio Pacini 1854 (Approved Lists 1980).

Note: According to several members of the "subcommittee on the taxonomy of Vibrionaceae", Allomonas enterica Kalina et al. 1984 (the type species of the genus Allomonas Kalina et al. 1984) is a later heterotypic synonym of ¤ Vibrio fluvialis Lee et al. 1981. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Allomonas to ¤ Vibrio.

¤ Vibrio fluvialis Lee et al. 1981.

Note: According to several members of the "subcommittee on the taxonomy of Vibrionaceae", Allomonas enterica Kalina et al. 1984 is a later heterotypic synonym of ¤ Vibrio fluvialis Lee et al. 1981. The two organisms are essentially identical in phenotype and are highly related as determined by DNA-DNA hybridization.
