Thermohydrogenium kirishiense Zacharova et al. 1996, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) ZE-7 (strain deposited in the collection of the Department of Microbiology, Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia) = DSM 11055.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: FR749963 (type strain DSM 11055, clone 1), FR749964 (type strain DSM 11055, clone 2), FR749965 (type strain DSM 11055, clone 3).
Etymology: Not given in the paper by Zacharova et al. 1996. The etymology seems to be the following: N.L. neut. adj. kirishiense, of or belonging to Kirishi.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 57. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1996, 46, 625-626.
Effective publication: ZACHAROVA (E.V.), MITROFANOVA (T.I.), KRASILNIKOVA (E.N.) and KONDRATIEVA (E.N.): Thermohydrogenium kirishiense gen. nov. and sp. nov., a new anaerobic thermophilic bacterium. Arch. Microbiol., 1993, 160, 492-497.
