Caminibacter hydrogeniphilus Alain et al. 2002, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) AM1116 = CIP 107140 = DSM 14510.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AJ309655.
Etymology: N.L. n. hydrogenum (from Gr. n. hudôr, water; and Gr. v. gennaô, to produce), hydrogen (that which produces water, so called because it forms water when exposed to oxygen); N.L. masc. adj. philus (from Gr. masc. adj. philos), friend, loving; N.L. masc. adj. hydrogeniphilus, hydrogen-liking, referring to its ability to grow lithotrophically on H2.
