Abstract

The specific epithet of Halobacterium salinarium is a grammatically incorrect form for the genitive of salinae (salt works). Therefore, we propose that the name of the type species of the genus Halobacterium should be changed to Halobacterium salinarum nom. corrig. This species includes strains often designated Halobacterium halobium or Halobacterium cutirubrum.
