homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
Desulfotomaculumruminis is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another species whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate genus Desulfotomaculum.
The genome of the type strain was sequenced as part of the DOE Joint Genome Institute Community Sequencing Programme.Publication:
