Psychroserpens Bowman et al. 1997, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Psychroserpens burtonensis Bowman et al. 1997.
Etymology: Gr. adj. psuchros, cold; L. masc. or fem. n. serpens, serpent; N.L. masc. n. Psychroserpens, cold serpent.
Valid publication: BOWMAN (J.P.), McCAMMON (S.A.), BROWN (J.L.), NICHOLS (P.D.) and McMEEKIN (T.A.): Psychroserpens burtonensis gen. nov., sp. nov., and Gelidibacter algens gen. nov., sp. nov., psychrophilic bacteria isolated from Antarctic lacustrine and sea ice habitats. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1997, 47, 670-677.

Note: The gender is not given by Bowman et al. 1997. The latin noun serpens can be in the masculine or in the feminine gender. The specific epithet of the species proposed by Bowman et al. 1997 does not allow the correct gender to be determined. According to Rule 65(1) when the original authors failed to indicate the gender, a subsequent author has the right of choice. In 2006, Kwon et al. propose the species Psychroserpens mesophilus (N.L. masculine adjective). Clearly, Kwon et al. 2006 choosed the masculine gender for the genus name Psychroserpens.
