Hydrogenobaculum Stöhr et al. 2001, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Hydrogenobaculum acidophilum (Shima and Suzuki 1993) Stöhr et al. 2001.
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); L. neut. n. baculum, small rod; N.L. neut. n. Hydrogenobaculum, water-producing small rod.
Valid publication: STÖHR (R.), WABERSKI (A.), VÖLKER (H.), TINDALL (B.J.) and THOMM (M.): Hydrogenothermus marinus gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel thermophilic hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium, recognition of Calderobacterium hydrogenophilum as a member of the genus Hydrogenobacter and proposal of the reclassification of Hydrogenobacter acidophilus as Hydrogenobaculum acidophilum gen. nov., comb. nov., in the phylum 'Hydrogenobacter/Aquifex'. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2001, 51, 1853-1862.
