Dechlorosoma Achenbach et al. 2001, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Dechlorosoma suillum Achenbach et al. 2001.
Etymology: L. pref. de, from; N.L. n. chlorinum (from Gr. adj. chlorôs, green), chlorine; N.L. pref. chloro-, pertaining to chlorine; Gr. neut. n. soma, body; N.L. neut. n. Dechlorosoma, dechlorinating body.

¤ Azospira Reinhold-Hurek and Hurek 2000.

Note: According to Tan and Reinhold-Hurek 2003, ¤ Dechlorosoma suillum Achenbach et al. 2001 (the type species of the genus Dechlorosoma) is a later heterotypic synonym of ¤ Azospira oryzae Reinhold-Hurek and Hurek 2000 emend. Tan and Reinhold-Hurek 2003. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Dechlorosoma to ¤ Azospira.
Reference: TAN (Z.) and REINHOLD-HUREK (B.): Dechlorosoma suillum Achenbach et al. 2001 is a later subjective synonym of Azospira oryzae Reinhold-Hurek and Hurek 2000. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2003, 53, 1139-1142.
