Bryantella Wolin et al. 2004, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Bryantella formatexigens Wolin et al. 2004.
Etymology: N.L. dim. fem. n. Bryantella, named in honour of the American microbiologist Marvin P. Bryant in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the microbial ecology of anaerobic ecosystems.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 95. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2004, 54, 1-2.
Effective publication: WOLIN (M.J.), MILLER (T.L.), COLLINS (M.D.) and LAWSON (P.A.): Formate-dependent growth and homoacetogenic fermentation by a bacterium from human feces: description of Bryantella formatexigens gen. nov., sp. nov. Appl. Environ. Microbiol., 2003, 69, 6321-6326.

¤ Marvinbryantia Wolin et al. 2008, gen. nov.

Note: The name Bryantella Wolin et al. 2004 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Bryantella Chickering, 1946 (Animalia, Arthropoda, Arachnida, Araneae, Salticidae, Dendryphantinae, Dendryphantini), and a later homonym of Bryantella Britton 1957 (Animalia, Arthropoda, Scarabaeoidea, Scarabaeidae, Melolonthinae). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation ¤ Marvinbryantia has been proposed by Wolin et al. 2008.

¤ Marvinbryantia formatexigens (Wolin et al. 2004) Wolin et al. 2008, comb. nov.

Note: The name Bryantella formatexigens Wolin et al. 2004 is illegitimate because the genus name is illegitimate (see ¤ Bryantella). Consequently, a new species designation ¤ Marvinbryantia formatexigens (Wolin et al. 2004) Wolin et al. 2008 has been proposed by Wolin et al. 2008.
Reference: WOLIN (M.J.), MILLER (T.L.) and LAWSON (P.A.): Proposal to replace the illegitimate genus name Bryantella Wolin et al. 2004(VP) with the genus name Marvinbryantia gen. nov. and to replace the illegitimate combination Bryantella formatexigens Wolin et al. 2004(VP) with Marvinbryantia formatexigens comb. nov.
