Xylanimicrobium Stackebrandt and Schumann 2004, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Xylanimicrobium pachnodae (Cazemier et al. 2004) Stackebrandt and Schumann 2004.
Etymology: N.L. neut. n. xylanum, xylan; N.L. neut. n. microbium, microbe; N.L. neut. n. Xylanimicrobium, xylan(-hydrolysing) microbe.
Valid publication: STACKEBRANDT (E.) and SCHUMANN (P.): Reclassification of Promicromonospora pachnodae Cazemier et al. 2004 as Xylanimicrobium pachnodae gen. nov., comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2004, 54, 1383-1386.

Note: The etymology given by Stackebrandt and Schumann 2004 is the following: N.L. neut. n. xylan (sic), xylan a polysaccharide; Gr. adj. mikros, small; Gr. masc. n. bios, life; N.L. neut. n. Xylanimicrobium, xylan-hydrolysing microbe. However, according to Rule 65, the correct name should be Xylanimicrobius and this name should be in the masculine gender. Consequently, the etymology provided above (see ¤ Etymology) has been changed in order to have a name in the neuter gender.
