Anaerorhabdus Shah and Collins 1986, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Anaerorhabdus furcosa corrig. (Veillon and Zuber 1898) Shah and Collins 1986.
Etymology: Gr. pref. an, not; Gr. n. aer, air: Gr. fem. n. rhabdos, rod; N.L. fem. n. Anaerohabdus, rod-shaped bacterium not living in air.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 22. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1986, 36, 573-576.
Effective publication: SHAH (H.N.) and COLLINS (M.D.): Reclassification of Bacteroides furcosus Veillon and Zuber (Hauduroy, Ehringer, Urbain, Guillot and Magrou) in a new genus Anaerorhabdus, as Anaerorhabdus furcosus comb. nov. Syst. Appl. Microbiol., 1986, 8, 86-88.
Validation List no. 22 in IJSEM Online - Effective publication Online

Note: The Greek word rhabdos is in the feminine gender. So, according to Rule 65 (2), the generic name Anaerorhabdus is in the feminine gender.
Reference: EUZÉBY (J.P.) and BOEMARE (N.E.): The modern Latin word rhabdus belongs to the feminine gender, inducing necessary corrections according to Rules 65(2), 12c(1) and 13b of the Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision). Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2000, 50, 1691-1692.
