Dehalospirillum Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Dehalospirillum multivorans Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002.
Etymology: L. pref. de, from; N.L. n. halogenum, halogen;  L. fem. n. spira, a spiral; N.L. dim. neut. n. spirillum a small spiral; N.L. dim. neut. n. Dehalospirillum, a dehalogenating small spiral.

¤ Sulfurospirillum Schumacher et al. 1993 emend. Luijten et al. 2003.

Note: Luijten et al. 2003 propose to transfer ¤ Dehalospirillum multivorans Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002 (the type species of the genus Dehalospirillum) to the genus ¤ Sulfurospirillum as ¤ Sulfurospirillum multivorans (Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002) Luijten et al. 2003, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Dehalospirillum to ¤ Sulfurospirillum.

Dehalospirillum multivorans Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) DSM 12446 = JCM 15788.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: X82931.
Etymology: L. adj. multus, many; L. part. adj. vorans, devouring; N.L. part. adj. multivorans, devouring numerous kinds of substrates.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 88. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2002, 52, 1915-1916.

Note: At the time of publication, the type strain was not deposited in two publicly accessible service collections in different countries, and Dehalospirillum multivorans Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002 was not validly published [Rules 27(3) and 30]. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Dehalospirillum multivorans Scholz-Muramatsu et al. 2002 is now considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.
