Rochalimaea (Macchiavello 1947) Krieg 1961, genus.
Type species: ¤ Rochalimaea quintana (Schmincke 1917) Krieg 1961 (Approved Lists 1980).
Synonym: "Rocha-Limae" (sic) Machiavello 1947.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Rochalimaea, named for H. da Rocha-Lima, one of the early investigators of the etiology of rickettsial diseases.
Approved Lists reference: SKERMAN (V.B.D.), McGOWAN (V.) and SNEATH (P.H.A.) (editors): Approved Lists of Bacterial Names. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1980, 30, 225-420 (Approved Lists of Bacterial Names in IJSEM Online - Approved Lists of Bacterial Names Amended edition).

¤ Bartonella Strong et al. 1915 (Approved Lists 1980) emend. Brenner et al. 1993.

Note: Brenner et al. 1993 propose to transfer ¤ Rochalimaea quintana (Schmincke 1917) Krieg 1961 (Approved Lists 1980), the type species of the genus Rochalimaea, to the genus ¤ Bartonella as ¤ Bartonella quintana (Schmincke 1917) Brenner et al. 1993, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Rochalimaea to ¤ Bartonella.
