Mesorhizobium thiogangeticum Ghosh and Roy 2006, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) strain SJT = LMG 22697 = MTCC 7001.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AJ864462.
Etymology: Gr. n. theion (Latin transliteration thium), sulfur; L. adj. gangeticus, from Ganga; N.L. neut. adj. thiogangeticum, because the bacterium is so far the only sulfur-lithotrophic member of Mesorhizobium and it is native of the Gangetic plains of India.
