Waddlia chondrophila Rurangirwa et al. 1999, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) WSU 86-1044 = ATCC VR-1470.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AF042496.
Etymology: Gr. n. chondros, granule; N.L. fem. adj. phila (from Gr. fem adj. philê), friend, loving; N.L. fem. adj. chondrophila, liking granules, in reference to the association of the organism with cellular mitochondria [the noun mitochondria was coined in1898 by the microbiologist Carl Benda (1857-1933), from Gr. mitos, thread + Gr. chondrion, little granule].
Valid publication: RURANGIRWA (F.R.), DILBECK (P.M.), CRAWFORD (T.B.), McGUIRE (T.C.) and McELWAIN (T.F.): Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene of micro-organism WSU 86-1044 from an aborted bovine foetus reveals that it is a member of the order Chlamydiales: proposal of Waddliaceae fam. nov., Waddlia chondrophila gen. nov., sp. nov. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1999, 49, 577-581.

Note: In the paper by Rurangirwa et al. 1999, the type strain is erroneously cited as ATCC VR 1470 (without dash).
