Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the fifth most written about¹ binomial name of all species. I'm having trouble coming to terms with the possibility that such a well researched and studied organism has never been given a shorter vernacular name. I can't find one listed anywhere.
Is there any short common name for it? Even a colloquial one? Maybe a pet name common to microbiologists or students in the labs of some particular region? I'm mostly interested in English but how about in other languages?
I am aware it can be abbreviated to P. aeruginosa. I don't consider that a common name. Pseudomonas by itself refers to a genus of around 191 species.
¹ "most written about" meaning mentioned in the most books or volumes of Google Books' English corpus (ngram data), according to my own research. The top five are: Homo sapiens, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
