Name:Lucibacterium Hendrie et al. 1970 (Approved Lists 1980)
Proposed as: gen. nov.
Lu.ci.bac.te.ri.um. L. fem. n.lux (gen. lucis), light; N.L. neut. n.bacterium, rod or staff and, in biology, a bacterium (so called because the first ones observed were rod-shaped); N.L. neut. n.Lucibacterium, light (-emitting) bacterium
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 Vibrio Pacini 1854 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Baumann P, Baumann L, Bang SS, Woolkalis MJ. Reevaluation of the taxonomy of Vibrio, Beneckea, and Photobacterium: abolition of the genus Beneckea. Curr. Microbiol. 1980; 4:127-132.
This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Lucibaclerium".
Lucibacterium is the correct name instead 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: 1; IFO: 1; CAIM: 1; NCCB: 1; ATCC: 1; LMG: 1; CIP: 1; CCUG: 1; NBRC: 1; NCTC: 1.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "LUBT" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
