Desulfonauticus autotrophicus Mayilraj et al. 2009, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) TeSt = DSM 4206 = JCM 13028.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: FJ194951.
Etymology: Gr. pron. autos, self; N.L. adj. trophicus (from Gr. adj. trophikos), nursing, tending; N.L. masc. adj. autotrophicus, self feeding, referring to the ability of the organism to use CO2 as a sole carbon source.
