Note: Tang et al. 2011 propose the transfer of Actinopolyspora iraqiensis Ruan et al. 1994 to the genus ¤ Saccharomonospora as a heterotypic synonym of ¤ Saccharomonospora halophila Al-Zarban et al. 2002. However, Actinopolyspora iraqiensis (validly published in 1994) cannot be a later heterotypic synonym of Saccharomonospora halophila (validly published in 2002).
