heterotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
For the type species of this genus another name is in use, which is affiliated with the genus Legionella Brenner et al. 1979 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Brenner DJ, Steigerwalt AG, Gorman GW, Weaver RE, Feeley JC, Cordes LG, Wilkinson HW, Patton C, Thomason BM, Lewallen Sasseville KR.

This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Fhoribacter".
Fluoribacter 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: DSM: 4; ATCC: 4; NCTC: 2; CCUG: 2.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "FLBT" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:

The genus name Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980 is a correct name (Principle 6). However, the names Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980, Fluoribacter bozemanae Garrity et al. 1980 (the type species of the genus), Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981, and Fluoribacter gormanii (Morris et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981 have never found widespread usage.Publication:
