Methylorhabdus Doronina et al. 1996, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Methylorhabdus multivorans Doronina et al. 1996.
Etymology: N.L. n. methylum (from French méthyle, back-formation from French méthylène, coined from Gr. n. methu, wine and Gr. n. hulê, wood), the methyl group; N.L. pref. methylo-, pertaining to the methyl radical; G. fem. n. rhabdos, rod; N.L. fem. n. Methylorhabdus, methyl rod.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 56. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1996, 46, 362-363.
Effective publication: DORONINA (N.V.), BRAUS-STROHMEYER (S.A.), LEISINGER (T.) and TROTSENKO (Y.A.): Isolation and characterization of a new facultatively methylotrophic bacterium: description of Methylorhabdus multivorans gen. nov., sp. nov. Syst. Appl. Microbiol., 1995, 18, 92-98.

Note: The Greek word rhabdos is in the feminine gender. So, according to Rule 65 (2), the generic name Methylorhabdus is in the feminine gender.
Reference: EUZÉBY (J.P.) and BOEMARE (N.E.): The modern Latin word rhabdus belongs to the feminine gender, inducing necessary corrections according to Rules 65(2), 12c(1) and 13b of the Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision). Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2000, 50, 1691-1692.
