Lactovum Matthies et al. 2005, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Lactovum miscens Matthies et al. 2005.
Etymology: L. n. lac lactis, milk; L. neut. n. ovum, egg; N.L. neut. n. Lactovum, egg from milk (perhaps because the type strain of the type species is an ovoid bacterium related to the genus Lactococcus).
