Etymology: N.L. gen. masc. n. jonesii, of Jones, named in honor of Raymond J. Jones, the Australian scientist who identified the activity of this bacterium in detoxification of 3,4-DHP and inoculated the rumens of cattle with this organism to solve animal intoxication problems when Leucaena leucocephala is grazed.
