You mean Gamma-proteobacteria or Enterobaceriaceae?

Is there any rule concerning the one who thinks of something ? Can only persons who have already guessed something correctly think of a word ?

No the next question come to the winner of the one before. But enterobacteriaceae is notthe answer, you have to go go down to the species level.

Mixing species and subspecies here. According to the Judicial commission you mix species, subspecies and cases serovar.
There are only 3 Species In the genus Salmonella: S. enterica, S. bongori, and S. subterranea
S. enterica comprised 6 sub species: enterica, arizonae, diarizonae, houtenae, indica and salamae.
S. typhi can be used to avoid confusion among the medical community, but is in fact S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhi.

But the question is still interesting ;)

Well we have to wait for Andrew's connection.

As for the correction after a Ph.D thesis on Salmonella it is hard not to be kind of snobish on the subject. Not that it makes a difference anyway :)
