Members of the Subcommittee on the taxonomy of Campylobacter and related bacteria had noted that the specific epithet jejuni was erroneously formed. This required correction of the spelling of the epithet or, alternatively, correction of the etymology. The subcommittee members reached a consensus to correct the etymology of the specific epithet jejuni. The correct etymology is: je.ju'ni. N.L. gen. neut. n. jejuni, of the jejunum.Publication:
