Tetrathiobacter Ghosh et al. 2005, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Tetrathiobacter kashmirensis Ghosh et al. 2005.
Etymology: Gr. adj. tetra, four; Gr. n. thium, sulfur; N.L. masc. n. bacter, a rod; N.L. masc. n. Tetrathiobacter, a tetrathionate-oxidizing bacterium.
Valid publication: GHOSH (W.), BAGCHI (A.), MANDAL (S.), DAM (B.) and ROY (P.): Tetrathiobacter kashmirensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel mesophilic, neutrophilic, tetrathionate-oxidizing, facultatively chemolithotrophic betaproteobacterium isolated from soil from a temperate orchard in Jammu and Kashmir, India. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2005, 55, 1779-1787.

¤ Advenella Coenye et al. 2005.

Note: Gibello et al. 2009 propose to transfer Tetrathiobacter kashmirensis Ghosh et al. 2005 (the type species of the genus Tetrathiobacter) to the genus ¤ Advenella as ¤ Advenella kashmirensis (Ghosh et al. 2005) Gibello et al. 2009, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Tetrathiobacter to ¤ Advenella.
