Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Fluoribacter bozemanae Garrity et al. 1980.
Etymology: N.L. n. fluorum, fluor (because of the fluorescence of this organism); N.L. masc. n. bacter, a rod or staff; N.L. masc. n. Fluoribacter, fluorescent rod.
Valid publication: GARRITY (G.M.), BROWN (A.) and VICKERS (R.M.): Tatlockia and Fluoribacter: two new genera of organisms resembling Legionella pneumophila. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1980, 30, 609-614.

Note: The genus name Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980 is a correct name (Principle 6). However, the names Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980, ¤ Fluoribacter bozemanae Garrity et al. 1980 (the type species of the genus), ¤ Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981, and ¤ Fluoribacter gormanii (Morris et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981 have never found widespread usage.

= ¤ Legionella bozemanae corrig. Brenner et al. 1980.

Note: Fluoribacter bozemanae Garrity et al. 1980 is an earlier homotypic synonym of ¤ Legionella bozemanae corrig. Brenner et al. 1980. According to his/her scientific opinion, a bacteriologist may use the species names Fluoribacter bozemanae Garrity et al. 1980 or ¤ Legionella bozemanae corrig. Brenner et al. 1980. However, Fluoribacter bozemanae has never found widespread usage. The same is true for the names ¤ Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980, ¤ Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981, and ¤ Fluoribacter gormanii (Morris et al. 1980).

Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: Z32637.
Basonym: ¤ Legionella dumoffii Brenner et al. 1980.
Etymology: N.L. gen. masc. n. dumoffii, of Dumoff, named after Morris Dumoff, who first isolated L. pneumophila directly on bacteriologic media.
Valid publication: BROWN (A.), GARRITY (G.M.) and VICKERS (R.M.): Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al.) comb. nov. and Fluoribacter gormanii (Morris et al.) comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1981, 31, 111-115.
