Annwoodia Boden et al. 2017, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Annwoodia aquaesulis Boden et al. 2017.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Annwoodia, named to honour Ann Patricia Wood (b. 1952) formerly of University of Warwick and King’s College London in the UK; a British microbial physiologist and taxonomist who first described the type strain and made significant contributions to the taxonomy of the ‘sulfur bacteria’ and methylotrophic 'Proteobacteria', their physiology and ecology.
Valid publication: BODEN, R., HUTT, L. P. and RAE, A. W. 2017. Reclassification of Thiobacillus aquaesulis (Wood & Kelly, 1995) as Annwoodia aquaesulis gen. nov., comb. nov., transfer of Thiobacillus (Beijerinck, 1904) from the Hydrogenophilales to the Nitrosomonadales, proposal of Hydrogenophilalia class. nov. within the 'Proteobacteria', and four new families within the orders Nitrosomonadales and Rhodocyclales.
