Ancylobacter Raj 1983, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Ancylobacter aquaticus (Ørskov 1928) Raj 1983.
Illegitimate synonym: ¤ Microcyclus Ørskov 1928 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: Gr. adj. ankulos, crooked, curved; N.L. masc. n. bacter, rod; N.L. masc. n. Ancylobacter, a curved rod.
Valid publication: RAJ (H.D.): Proposal of Ancylobacter gen. nov. as a substitute for the bacterial genus Microcyclus Ørskov 1928. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1983, 33, 397-398.

Note: Microcyclus Ørskov 1928 (Approved Lists 1980) is illegitimate because of precedence of the fungal genus Microcyclus Saccardo 1904 [Rule 51b (4)].
