Species named after persons A-C

General remarks

Taxon names are frequently derived from personal names to honour persons, particularly persons associated with microbiology. Epithets of species or subspecies can be formed from latinized personal names in the adjective form or in the genitive noun form [Rule 63]. The latter allows for distinguishing between female and male persons to be honoured. A part of the species names found in LPSN and unambiguously derived in the genitive noun form of a personal name (or, rarely, derived in the same way from the name of another kind of entity) are listed below, arranged by the name of the person to which they are referring. See also the LPSN introductory page on forming names.

New combinations

In the case of a new combination these epithets must not be adapted to the gender of the genus name.
