Type species: ¤ Thioalkalivibrio versutus Sorokin et al. 2001.
Etymology: Gr. n. theion (Latin transliteration thium), sulfur; N.L. n. alkali (from Arabic al-qalyi, the ashes of saltwort), soda ash; L. v. vibro, to set in tremulous motion, move to and fro, vibrate; N.L. masc. n. vibrio, that which vibrates, and also a bacterial genus name of bacteria possessing a curved rod shape (Vibrio); N.L. masc. n. Thioalkalivibrio, sulfur alkaline vibrio.
Valid publication: SOROKIN (D.Y.), LYSENKO (A.M.), MITYUSHINA (L.L.), TOUROVA (T.P.), JONES (B.E.), RAINEY (F.A.), ROBERTSON (L.A.) and KUENEN (G.J.): Thioalkalimicrobium aerophilum gen. nov., sp. nov. and Thioalkalimicrobium sibericum sp. nov., and Thioalkalivibrio versutus gen. nov., sp. nov., Thioalkalivibrio nitratis sp. nov. and Thioalkalivibrio denitrificans sp. nov., novel obligately alkaliphilic and obligately chemolithoautotrophic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria from soda lakes.

Note: The original spelling, Thioalkalivibrio, was corrected to Thialkalivibrio by the List Editor of the IJSEM [1]. However, during the meeting of the Judicial Commission held during the Xth International (IUMS) Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology [2], H.G. Trüper proposed that the recommendations governing the use of the connecting vowel should be overruled by the usage in chemistry and physics. Consequently, in combined names, which include terms used in chemistry or physics the connecting vowel shall not be dropped when the following component starts with a vowel and when this may cause ambiguity or uncertainty in meaning [2]. The Judicial Commission unanimously agreed to this proposal [2] and the original spelling, Thioalkalivibrio, must be used.

Note: The genus name Thioalkalivibrio, proposed by Sorokin et al. 2001 [1], was corrected to Thialkalivibrio by the List Editor of the IJSEM [2]. Consequently, in 2003, Sorokin et al. proposed the name Thialkalivibrio nitratireducens [3]. However, during the meeting of the Judicial Commission held during the Xth International (IUMS) Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology [4], H.G. Trüper proposed that the recommendations governing the use of the connecting vowel should be overruled by the usage in chemistry and physics. Consequently, in combined names, which include terms used in chemistry or physics the connecting vowel shall not be dropped when the following component starts with a vowel and when this may cause ambiguity or uncertainty in meaning [4]. The Judicial Commission unanimously agreed to this proposal [4] and the name Thioalkalivibrio nitratireducens corrig. must be used.
