Krokinobacter Khan et al. 2006, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Krokinobacter genikus Khan et al. 2006.
Etymology: Gr. adj. krokinos, yellow; N.L. masc. n. bacter, rod; N.L. masc. n. Krokinobacter, a yellow, rod-like bacterium.
Valid publication: KHAN (S.T.), NAKAGAWA (Y.) and HARAYAMA (S.): Krokinobacter gen. nov., with three novel species, in the family Flavobacteriaceae. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2006, 56, 323-328.

¤ Dokdonia Yoon et al. 2005

Note: Yoon et al. 2012 propose to transfer Krokinobacter genikus Khan et al. 2006, the type species of the genus Krokinobacter, to the genus ¤ Dokdonia as ¤ Dokdonia genika (Khan et al. 2006) Yoon et al. 2012, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Krokinobacter to ¤ Dokdonia.
