The original spelling of the genus name, Thioalkalimicrobium (sic), was corrected by the List Editor of the IJSEM to Thialkalimicrobium (IJSEM 51:796). This correction was withdrawn following a decision of the Judicial Commission of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes at the Xth International (IUMS) Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology 2002, Paris (See IJSEM 55:527, Session 2, Minute 13).
The original spelling, Thioalkalimicrobium cyclicum, was corrected to Thialkalimicrobium cyclicum by the List Editor of the IJSEM . However, during the meeting of the Judicial Commission held during the Xth International (IUMS) Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology , H.G. Trüper proposed that the recommendations governing the use of the connecting vowel should be overruled by the usage in chemistry and physics. Consequently, in combined names, which include terms used in chemistry or physics the connecting vowel shall not be dropped when the following component starts with a vowel and when this may cause ambiguity or uncertainty in meaning . The Judicial Commission unanimously agreed to this proposal  and the original spelling, Thioalkalimicrobium cyclicum, must be used.Publication:
