Note: The Greek word rhabdos is in the feminine gender. So, according to Rule 65 (2), the generic name Halorhabdus is in the feminine gender, not in the masculine gender as cited by Wainø et al. 2000.
Reference: EUZÉBY (J.P.) and BOEMARE (N.E.): The modern Latin word rhabdus belongs to the feminine gender, inducing necessary corrections according to Rules 65(2), 12c(1) and 13b of the Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision). Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2000, 50, 1691-1692.
