The species name Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981 is a correct name (Principle 6). According to his/her scientific opinion, a bacteriologist may use the species names Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981 or Legionella dumoffii Brenner et al. 1980. However, the names Fluoribacter Garrity et al. 1980, Fluoribacter bozemanae Garrity et al. 1980, Fluoribacter dumoffii (Brenner et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981, and Fluoribacter gormanii (Morris et al. 1980) Brown et al. 1981 have never found widespread usage.Publication:
