Wautersia Vaneechoutte et al. 2004, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Wautersia eutropha (Davis 1969) Vaneechoutte et al. 2004.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Wautersia, named in honour of the Belgian microbiologist Georges Wauters.
Valid publication: VANEECHOUTTE (M.), KÄMPFER (P.), DE BAERE (T.), FALSEN (E.) and VERSCHRAEGEN (G.): Wautersia gen. nov., a novel genus accommodating the phylogenetic lineage including Ralstonia eutropha and related species, and proposal of Ralstonia [Pseudomonas] syzygii (Roberts et al. 1990) comb. nov.

Note: Wautersia is a N.L. fem. n., not a L. fem. n. as cited in the paper by Vaneechoutte et al. 2004.

¤ Cupriavidus Makkar and Casida 1987 emend. Vandamme and Coenye 2004.

Note: According to Vandamme and Coenye 2004, ¤ Wautersia eutropha (the type species of the genus Wautersia) is a later heterotypic synonym of ¤ Cupriavidus necator (the type species of the genus Cupriavidus). According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Wautersia to Cupriavidus.
