Name: "Candidatus Aschnera chinzeii" Hosokawa et al. 2012

Category: Species

Proposed as: Candidatus

Etymology: N.L. gen. masc. n. chinzeii, The generic name honors Manfred Aschner, who first described the endosymbionts of nycteribiid bat flies (Aschner, 1931, 1946). The specific name is after the biologist Yasuo Chinzei from Japan, who significantly contributed to the biochemistry and molecular biology of blood-sucking insects (Yuda et al., 1996; Kadota et al., 2004).
