Note: In the paper by Moreira and Amils 1997, Thiomonas cuprina is cited as Thiomonas cuprina (Huber and Stetter) Moreira and Amils 1997, comb. nov. (basonym: "Thiobacillus cuprinus" Huber and Stetter 1990). However, the name "Thiobacillus cuprinus" has never been validly published. Consequently, the original proposal Thiomonas cuprina comb. nov. is changed to Thiomonas cuprina sp. nov.
