Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "IDBT" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:

The nomenclatural name Ioeidobacter (Gr. adj. ioeides, violet-colored; N.L. bacter, a small rod; N.L. masc. n. Ioeidobacter, a small violet-colored rod) seems better than Iodobacter.Publication:
