Dehalogenimonas Moe et al. 2009, gen. nov.

Type species: ¤ Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens Moe et al. 2009.
Etymology: L. prep. de, away, off; N.L. n. halogenum, halogen; L. fem. n. monas, unit, monad; N.L. fem. n. Dehalogenimonas, dehalogenating monad, reflecting the ability of these bacteria to dehalogenate chlorinated alkanes.

Dehalogenimonas alkenigignens Bowman et al. 2013, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain IP3-3 = JCM 17062 = NRRL B-59545.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: JQ994266.
Etymology: N.L. n. alkenum, alkene; L. part. adj. gignens, giving birth to, producing; N.L. part. adj. alkenigignens, producing alkene, because alkenes are produced during anaerobic reductive dehalogenation of chlorinated alkanes.

Dehalogenimonas lykanthroporepellens Moe et al. 2009, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain BL-DC-9 = ATCC BAA-1523 = JCM 15061.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: CP002084 (complete genome).
Etymology: Gr. n. lykanthropos, werewolf; L. part. adj. repellens, repelling; N.L. part. adj. lykanthroporepellens, repelling werewolves, because compounds exhibiting a pungent garlic aroma are produced when these organisms grow in the presence of 1,2,3-trichloropropane as an electron acceptor and sulfide as a reducing agent, garlic being said to repel werewolves in some fiction literature.
