Nitrosolobus Watson et al. 1971, genus.
Type species: ¤ Nitrosolobus multiformis Watson et al. 1971 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: L. adj. nitrosus, full of natron; here intended to mean nitrous; N.L. masc. n. lobus (from Gr. masc. n. lobos, lobe of the ear, or liver, or lung), a lobe; N.L. masc. n. nitrosolobus, nitrous lobe, a lobe producing nitrite.

Original publication: WATSON (S.W.), GRAHAM (L.B.), REMSEN (C.C.) and VALOIS (F.W.): A lobular ammonia-oxidizing bacterium Nitrosolobus multiformis Nov. sp. Archiv fur Mikrobiologie, 1971, 76, 83-203.

¤ Nitrosospira Winogradsky and Winogradsky 1933 (Approved Lists 1980).

Note: Head et al. 1995 propose to transfer ¤ Nitrosolobus multiformis Watson et al. 1971 (Approved Lists 1980) (the type species of the genus Nitrosolobus) to the genus ¤ Nitrosospira as ¤ Nitrosospira multiformis (Watson et al. 1971) Head et al. 1995, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Nitrosolobus to ¤ Nitrosospira.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 54. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1995, 45, 619-620.
Effective publication: HEAD (I.M.), HIORNS (W.D.), EMBLEY (T.M.), McCARTHY (A.J.) and SAUNDERS (J.R.): The phylogeny of autotrophic ammonia-oxidizing bacteria as determined by analysis of 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequences. J. Gen. Microbiol., 1993, 139, 1147-1153.
