Nomenclatural type of the genus Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980.Publication:
Garrity GM, Brown A, Vickers RM. Tatlockia and Fluoribacter: two new genera of organisms resembling Legionella pneumophila. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 1980; 30:609-614.
Fluoribacterbozemanae 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 Fluoribacter.
According to Bartlett et al. (2022), this species is an established human pathogen.Publication:
Bartlett A, Padfield D, Lear L, Bendall R, Vos M. A comprehensive list of bacterial pathogens infecting humans. Microbiology 2022; 168:0.
