Etymology[edit]

The name Brevundimonas derives from:   Latin adjective brevis, short; Latin feminine gender noun unda, a wave; Latin feminine gender noun monas (μονάς / μονάδα), nominally meaning "a unit", but in effect meaning a bacterium; New Latin feminine gender noun Brevundimonas, bacteria with short wavelength flagella.[1]

Members of the genus Brevundimonas can be referred to as brevundimonad (viz. Trivialisation of names).
