This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Melallogenium"; "Metdlogenium".
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "MLOG" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
Pittman KF, Walczak CA, Lock CM. Codes and abbreviations for approved of effectively published names of genera of bacteria published from January 1980 to December 1990. Int J Syst Bacteriol 1991; 41:571-579.
While the authors did not explicitly propose this taxon name, they did not provide a proper citation of the authority of the name either.
