Phaeospirillumchandramohanii 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 Phaeospirillum.
According to Ludwig et al. (2021), this "species affiliates with Magnetospirillum and should be reclassified".Publication:
