Hydrogenimonas Takai et al. 2004, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Hydrogenimonas thermophila Takai et al. 2004.
Etymology: N.L. n. hydrogenum (from Gr. n. hudôr, water; and Gr. v. gennaô, to produce), hydrogen (that which produces water, so called because it forms water when exposed to oxygen); Gr. fem. n. monas, a unit, monad; N.L. fem. n. Hydrogenimonas, hydrogen monad.
Valid publication: TAKAI (K.), NEALSON (K.H.) and HORIKOSHI (K.): Hydrogenimonas thermophila gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel thermophilic, hydrogen-oxidizing chemolithoautotroph within the ε-Proteobacteria, isolated from a black smoker in a Central Indian Ridge hydrothermal field. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2004, 54, 25-32.
