Syntrophospora Zhao et al. 1990, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Syntrophospora bryantii (Stieb and Schink 1985) Zhao et al. 1990.
Etymology: Gr. prep. sun, in company with, together with; Gr. n. trophos, one who feeds; N.L. n. spora (from Gr. spora, a seed), a spore; N.L. fem. n. Syntrophospora, a spore former which feeds together with (another species).

¤ Syntrophomonas McInerney et al. 1982.

Note: Wu et al. 2006 propose to transfer ¤ Syntrophospora bryantii (Stieb and Schink 1985) Zhao et al. 1990 (the type species of the genus Syntrophospora) to the genus ¤ Syntrophomonas as ¤ Syntrophomonas bryantii (Stieb and Schink 1985) Wu et al. 2006, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal should change the name Syntrophospora to ¤ Syntrophomonas. However, Syntrophomonas bryantii (Stieb and Schink 1985) Wu et al. 2006 is not validly published [see ¤ Syntrophomonas bryantii (Stieb and Schink 1985) Wu et al. 2006, comb. nov.].
Reference: WU (C.), LIU (X.) and DONG (X.): Syntrophomonas cellicola sp. nov., a spore-forming syntrophic bacterium isolated from a distilled-spirit-fermenting cellar, and assignment of Syntrophospora bryantii to Syntrophomonas bryantii comb. nov.

Syntrophospora bryantii (Stieb and Schink 1985) Zhao et al. 1990, comb. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) CuCal = DSM 3014A (co-culture with Desulfovibrio sp., E70) = DSM 3014B (co-culture with Methanospirillum hungatei, strain M1h).
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: not found.
Basonym: ¤ Clostridium bryantii Stieb and Schink 1985.
Etymology: N.L. gen. n. bryantii, of Bryant, named after Marvin P. Bryant, who pioneered studies on syntrophic methanogenic associations.
