De Vos et al. (2009) assigned this genus to the family Veillonellaceae Rogosa 1971 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:

For the type species of this genus another name is in use, which is affiliated with the genus Propionispira Schink et al. 1983.Publication:
Ueki A, Watanabe M, Ohtaki Y, Kaku N, Ueki K. Description of Propionispira arcuata sp. nov., isolated from a methanogenic reactor of cattle waste, reclassification of Zymophilus raffinosivorans and Zymophilus paucivorans as Propionispira raffinosivorans comb. nov. and Propionispira paucivorans comb. nov. and emended description of the genus Propionispira.

This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Zymophifus"; "Zymophitus"; "Zymopllilus"; "Zymphilus"; "Zyrnophilus"; "Zysophilus".
Zymophilus 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).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: ATCC: 2; DSM: 2.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "ZMPH" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
