Pirella Schlesner and Hirsch 1984, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Pirella staleyi Schlesner and Hirsch 1984.
Etymology: L. n. pirum, pear; L. fem. dim. ending -ella; N.L. fem. n. Pirella, a small pear, referring to the shape of the bacterium.
Valid publication: SCHLESNER (H.) and HIRSCH (P.): Assignment of ATCC 27377to Pirella gen. nov. as Pirella staleyi comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1984, 34, 492-495.

¤ Pirellula Schlesner and Hirsch 1987, gen. nov.

Note: The name Pirella is illegitimate because of precedence of the fungal genus Pirella Bainier 1883 [Rule 51b(4)]. Consequently, a new genus designation Pirellula has been proposed by Schlesner and Hirsch 1987.
Reference: SCHLESNER (H.) and HIRSCH (P.): Rejection of the genus name Pirella for pear-shaped budding bacteria and proposal to create the genus Pirellula gen. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1987, 37, 441.
