    Sheu et al. 2011 propose to transfer the type species of the type genus of the family ¤ Sinobacteraceae in the genus ¤ Solimonas. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name ¤ Sinobacter to ¤ Solimonas.
    With the now defunct name Sinobacter there is now an inconsistency in the nomenclature with the name Sinobacteraceae. Therefore, Losey et al. 2013 propose the name ¤ Solimonadaceae fam. nov. to include members of the genera ¤ Solimonas and ¤ Fontimonas.

    Yaniellaceae
    Note: The genus ¤ Yaniella Li et al. 2008 (the type genus of the family ¤ Yaniellaceae Li et al. 2008) is in most 16S rRNA gene sequence-based phylogenetic analyses a member of the family ¤ Micrococcaceae Pribram 1929 (Approved Lists 1980). According to Schumann et al. 2009, it appears debatable whether it deserves the status as the type genus of its own family Yaniellaceae. According to Yassin et al. 2011, ¤ Yaniellaceae Li et al. 2008 is a later heterotypic synonym of ¤ Micrococcaceae Pribram 1929 (Approved Lists 1980).
