Type species: ¤ Hydrogenothermus marinus 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); Gr. adj. thermos, hot; N.L. masc. n. Hydrogenothermus, hot and water producer.
