Amycolata Lechevalier et al. 1986, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Amycolata autotrophica (Takamiya and Tubaki 1956) Lechevalier et al. 1986.
Etymology: Gr. prefix a, not; Gr. n. mukês -êtos, mushroom or other fungus; L. fem. -ata, suffix used in adjectives meaning provided with; N.L. fem. n. Amycolata, not having mycolates (α-branched, β-hydroxy long-chain fatty acids).

¤ Pseudonocardia Henssen 1957 (Approved Lists 1980).

Note: Warwick et al. 1994 propose to transfer ¤ Amycolata autotrophica (Takamiya and Tubaki 1956) Lechevalier et al. 1986 (the type species of the genus Amycolata) to the genus ¤ Pseudonocardia as ¤ Pseudonocardia autotrophica (Takamiya and Tubaki 1956) Warwick et al. 1994, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Amycolata to ¤ Pseudonocardia.
