Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AF275713.
Etymology: N.L. n. alkali (from Arabic al-qalyi, the ashes of saltwort), soda ash; Gr. adj. philos -ê -on, loving; N.L. neut. adj. alkaliphilum, loving alkaline conditions.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 87. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2002, 52, 1437-1438.
Effective publication: ZHANG (W.), XUE (Y.), MA (Y.), GRANT (W.D.), VENTOSA (A.) and ZHOU (P.): Marinospirillum alkaliphilum sp. nov., a new alkaliphilic helical bacterium from Haoji soda lake in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China. Extremophiles, 2002, 6, 33-37.

Note: According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published, because the original publication makes reference to the deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Marinospirillum alkaliphilum Zhang et al. 2002 is considered to be validly published, since deposit in a second culture collection in a different country has been documented.
