Desulfomonas Moore et al. 1976, genus.
Type species: ¤ Desulfomonas pigra Moore et al. 1976 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: L. pref. de, from; L. n. sulfur, sulfur; N.L. pref. desulfo-, desulfuricating; L. fem. n. monas, unit, monad; N.L. fem. n. Desulfomonas, a cell that reduces sulfur compounds.

Original publication: MOORE (W.E.C.), JOHNSON (J.L.) and HOLDEMAN (L.V.): Emendation of Bacteriodaceae and Butyrivibrio and descriptions of Desulfomonas gen. nov. and ten new species in the genera Desulfomonas, Butyrivibrio, Eubacterium, Clostridium and Ruminococcus. International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology, 1976, 26, 238-252.

¤ Desulfovibrio Kluyver and van Niel 1936 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Loubinoux et al. 2002.

Note: Loubinoux et al. 2002 propose to transfer ¤ Desulfomonas pigra Moore et al. 1976 (Approved Lists 1980), the type species of the genus Desulfomonas, to the genus ¤ Desulfovibrio as ¤ Desulfovibrio piger (Moore et al. 1976) Loubinoux et al. 2002, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Desulfomonas to ¤ Desulfovibrio.
