Grimontia Thompson et al. 2003, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Grimontia hollisae (Hickman et al. 1982) Thompson et al. 2003.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Grimontia, named after the French microbiologist P. A. D. Grimont.
Valid publication: THOMPSON (F.L.), HOSTE (B.), VANDEMEULEBROECKE (K.) and SWINGS (J.): Reclassification of Vibrio hollisae as Grimontia hollisae gen. nov., comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2003, 53, 1615-1617.

Notes:
1 Grimontia Thompson et al. 2003 is illegitimate because the type species is not validly published.
2 The genus name Grimontia is a N.L. fem. n. in the nominative case, not a N.L. n. in the genitive case as cited by Thompson et al. 2003.

Note: According to Rules 27(3) and 30 [1], this new combination is not validly published because the effective publication only documents deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However deposit in at least one other recognized culture collections in a different country is documented. In a Request for an Opinion, Euzéby and Tindall provide a solution whereby this name may be considered to be validly published [2].
