Emendation accompanied by the proposal of 1 new species in the genus.
For the type species of this genus another name is in use, which is affiliated with the genus Thermoanaerobacter Wiegel and Ljungdahl 1982.Publication:

Transfer of the type species of the genus Thermobacteroides to the genus Thermoanaerobacter as Thermoanaerobacter acetoethylicus (Ben-Bassat and Zeikus 1981) comb. nov., description of Coprothermobacter gen. nov., and reclassification of Thermobacteroides proteolyticus as Coprothermobacter proteolyticus (Ollivier et al. 1985) comb. nov.

This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Tbermobacteroides"; "Themobacteroides"; "Thennobacteroides"; "Therinobacteroides"; "Yhermobacteroides".
Thermobacteroides 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).
