Thermosynechococcus H.Katoh, S.Itoh, J.-R.Shen & M.Ikeuchi, 2001, nom. inval.
Holotype species: Thermosynechococcus elongatus Katoh, Itoh, Shen & Ikeuchi
Original publication and holotype designation: Katoh H., Itoh S., Shen J.-R. & Ikeuchi M. (2001). Functional analysis of psbV and a novel c-type cytochrome gene psbV2 of the thermophilic cyanobacterium Thermosynechococcus elongatus strain BP-1. Plant Cell Physiology 42(6): 599-607.
Taxonomic status: uncertain, requiring further investigation.
Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Komárek, J., Kastovsky, J., Mares, J. & Johansen, J.R. (2014). Taxonomic classification of cyanoprokaryotes (cyanobacterial genera) 2014, using a polyphasic approach. Preslia 86: 295-335.
Invalid: no description or diagnosis, or selection of type. Only this statement is included: 'The authors propose to rename the thermophilic Synechococcus elongatus to "Thermosynechococcus elongatus", because it is distantly related with the mesophilic Synechococcus elongatus as described in Materials and Methods. The nucleotide sequences in this paper have been registered in the EMBL, GenBank and DDBJ under accession number AB052597 and AB052598 with the new organism names "Thermosynechococcus elongatus strain BP-1" and "Thermosynechococcus vulcanus".' - (22 May 2013) - M.D. Guiry
