Hydrogenophilus Hayashi et al. 1999, gen. nov. (Type genus of the order ¤ Hydrogenophilales Garrity et al. 2006; type genus of the family ¤ Hydrogenophilaceae Garrity et al. 2006).
Type species: ¤ Hydrogenophilus thermoluteolus Hayashi et al. 1999.
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); N.L. adj. philus -a -um (from Gr. adj. philos -ê -on), friend, loving; N.L. masc. n. Hydrogenophilus, hydrogen lover.
Valid publication: HAYASHI (N.R.), ISHIDA (T.), YOKOTA (A.), KODAMA (T.) and IGARASHI (Y.): Hydrogenophilus thermoluteolus gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermophilic, facultatively chemolithoautotrophic, hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1999, 49, 783-786.
