Emendation accompanied by the proposal of 1 new species in the genus.
The terminology used by the authors is in line with many other taxonomic studies and does not negatively affect their main results; some improvements may nevertheless be possible. Contrasting the term "chemotaxonomic" with "phenotypic" is not recommended. Whether taxa can have "members" is debatable. See the LPSN phylogeny page for details.

Winslow et al. (1920) assigned this genus to the tribe "Bactereae".Publication:

This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Pioteus"; "Prateus"; "Proeus"; "Proleus"; "Protaus"; "Protcus"; "Proteiis"; "Proteue"; "Proteuis"; "Protous"; "Prouteus"; "Pruteus"; "Pvoteus".
Taxonomists who have recently focused on this group are the corresponding authors of Dai et al. (2019). Editors in search of reviewers are advised to consider additional criteria such as whether a taxon is covered by one of the ICSP subcommittees.
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: DSM: 14; ATCC: 10; CCUG: 10; LMG: 7; JCM: 7; NCTC: 7; CGMCC: 2; NBRC: 1; NCIMB: 1; NCCB: 1.
Proteus Hauser 1885 (Approved Lists 1980) is a later homonym of a genus name with standing in the zoological (animal) nomenclature: Proteus Laurenti, 1768. Principle 2 of the 2008 Code is not retroactive, so the name does not contravene the Code because of this homonymy. — Crook M. Personal communication, 2021-08-19.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "PROT" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
