Ignatzschineria [ig-nat"shi-ner'e-ǝ]

A genus of aerobic, gram-negative, nonmotile rods, Ignatzschineria was first isolated from flies of the family Sarcophagidae (from the Greek sarco ["flesh"] + phage ["eating"]) by Erika Tóth et al. in 2001. Tóth named the genus after Austrian entomologist Ignaz Rudolph Schiner (1813–1873), who first described the fly Wohlfahrtia magnifica. In 2007, Tóth discovered that Schineria had already been used for genus of tachina flies and proposed the replacement genus name Ignatzschineria.
