Agromonas is the correct name if this genus is regarded as a separate genus (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another genus whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: JCM: 1; LMG: 1; ATCC: 1; DSM: 1.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "AGMN" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
