Volcaniella Quesada et al. 1990, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Volcaniella eurihalina Quesada et al. 1990.
Etymology: N.L. fem. dim. n. Volcaniella, named for B. Elazari- Volcani, the microbiologist who first described halophilic microorganisms from the Dead Sea.
Valid publication: QUESADA (E.), VALDERRAMA (M.J.), BEJAR (V.), VENTOSA (A.), GUTIERREZ (M.C.), RUIZ-BERRAQUERO (F.) and RAMOS-CORMENZANA (A.): Volcaniella eurihalina gen. nov., sp. nov., a moderately halophilic nonmotile gram-negative rod. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1990, 40, 261-267.

¤ Halomonas Vreeland et al. 1980.

Note: Mellado et al. 1995 propose to transfer ¤ Volcaniella eurihalina Quesada et al. 1990 (the type species of the genus Volcaniella) to the genus ¤ Halomonas as ¤ Halomonas eurihalina (Quesada et al. 1990) Mellado et al. 1995, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Volcaniella to ¤ Halomonas.
