Cedecea Grimont et al. 1981, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Cedecea davisae Grimont et al. 1981.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Cedecea, arbitrarily derived from the abbreviation CDC. The named was coined by P.A.D. Grimont and F. Grimont for the Centers for Disease Control, Atlanta, Georgia, where the organisms were originally recognized as a new group and named Enteric Group 15.
Valid publication: GRIMONT (P.A.D.), GRIMONT (F.), FARMER III (J.J.) and ASBURY (M.A.): Cedecea davisae gen. nov., sp. nov. and Cedecea lapagei sp. nov., new Enterobacteriaceae from clinical specimens. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1981, 31, 317-326.
