Serpula Stanton et al. 1991, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Serpula hyodysenteriae (Harris et al. 1972) Stanton et al. 1991.
Etymology: L. fem. n. Serpula, a little snake.
Valid publication: STANTON (T.B.), JENSEN (N.S.), CASEY (T.A.), TORDOFF (L.A.), DEWHIRST (F.E.) and PASTER (B.J.): Reclassification of Treponema hyodysenteriae and Treponema innocens in a new genus, Serpula gen. nov., as Serpula hyodysenteriae comb. nov. and Serpula innocens comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1991, 41, 50-58.

¤ Serpulina Stanton 1992, gen. nov.

Note: The name, Serpula Stanton et al. 1991, is illegitimate because of precedence of the fungal genus Serpula [Rule 51b(4)]. Consequently, a new genus designation, Serpulina, has been proposed by Stanton 1992.
Reference: STANTON (T.B.): Proposal to change the genus designation Serpula to Serpulina gen. nov. containing the species Serpulina hyodysenteriae comb. nov. and Serpulina innocens comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1992, 42, 189-190.

Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) B78 = ATCC 27164= CCUG 46668 = NCTC 13041.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: U14930.
Basonym: ¤ Treponema hyodysenteriae Harris et al. 1972 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: Gr. n. hus huos, hog, pig; L. n. dysenteria, a flux, dysentery; N.L. gen. n. hyodysenteriae, of hog dysentery. In recognition of the species as the etiologic agent of swine dysentery.
Valid publication: STANTON (T.B.), JENSEN (N.S.), CASEY (T.A.), TORDOFF (L.A.), DEWHIRST (F.E.) and PASTER (B.J.): Reclassification of Treponema hyodysenteriae and Treponema innocens in a new genus, Serpula gen. nov., as Serpula hyodysenteriae comb. nov. and Serpula innocens comb. nov.

Note: The type strain B78 is cited as ATCC 27164 [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] or as ATCC 27168 [6, 7]. However, the right type strain is the strain ATCC 27164 [8].
