1) who named that organism
2) didn't they misspell it?
Bdello means vampire and it ressemble vibrio genus of bacteria because it is a curved rod. bacteriovirus is because this organism an obligate parasite of gram-negative bacteria and when they first isolated the organism they though it was a bacterial virus. Hence the name.
so it is supposed to say vorus?
I made a mistake. bacteriavorus means it eats bacteria. Vorus means eating.
that explains a lot :) thanks for figuring that out..
