Amorphosporangium Couch 1963, genus.
Type species: ¤ Amorphosporangium auranticolor Couch 1963 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: Gr. adj. amorphos, without form, shapeless; N.L. neut. n. sporangium (from Gr. n. spora, a seed and, in biology, a spore; Gr. n. angeion, vessel), sporangium; N.L. neut. n. Amorphosporangium, irregularly shaped sporangium.

¤ Actinoplanes Couch 1950 (Approved Lists 1980).

Note: Stackebrandt and Kroppenstedt 1988 propose to transfer ¤ Amorphosporangium auranticolor Couch 1963 (Approved Lists 1980), the type species of the genus Amorphosporangium, to the genus ¤ Actinoplanes as ¤ Actinoplanes auranticolor (Couch 1963) Stackebrandt and Kroppenstedt 1988, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Amorphosporangium to ¤ Actinoplanes.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 26. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1988, 38, 328-329.
Effective publication: STACKEBRANDT (E.) and KROPPENSTEDT (R.M.): Union of the genera Actinoplanes Couch, Ampullariella Couch, and Amorphosporangium Couch in a redefined genus Actinoplanes. Syst. Appl. Microbiol., 1987, 9, 110-114.
