Category: Species

Etymology: pentastirinorum, The genus name is meant to honour Alexander H. Purcell for his accomplished research in the ecology and biology of insects and their bacteria, including studies on symbionts of sap-feeding insects (Purcell et al., 1986; Chen and Purcell, 1996; Montllor et al., 2002) the epidemiology of insect-bacteria-plant interactions (Purcell et al., 1979; Purcell, 1981; Almeida and Purcell, 2006), and insect vectors of plant pathogenic xylem and phloem-inhabiting bacteria (Purcell, 1982; 1988).
