Aerobacter liquefaciens Beijerinck 1900 was originally proposed as the only species and type species of the genus Aeromonas Kluyver and van Niel 1936. The description of this species differs in some important properties from all species currently recognized as members of the genus Aeromonas. In accordance with the provisions of Rule 9c(3c) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria, it is proposed that the generic name Aeromonas Kluyver and van Niel 1936 and the species name Aeromonas liquefaciens Beijerinck) Kluyver and van Niel 1936 be designated as nomina rejicienda and without standing in nomenclature, and that the generic name Aeromonas be conserved with the type species Aeromonas punctata (Zimmermann) Snieszko 1957. The definition of the genus Aeromonas is emended. The official request to the Judicial Commission will be published later.
