Bacteriolyticum Piñeiro et al. 2008, gen. nov. (Illegitimate genus name).
Type species: ¤ Bacteriolyticum stolpii (Seidler et al. 1972) Piñeiro et al. 2008.

Note: Piñeiro et al. 2008 propose to transfer ¤ Bacteriovorax stolpii (Seidler et al. 1972) Baer et al. 2000, the type species of the genus ¤ Bacteriovorax, to the new genus Bacteriolyticum Piñeiro et al. 2008 as ¤ Bacteriolyticum stolpii (Seidler et al. 1972) Piñeiro et al. 2008, comb. nov. According to Principle 1, Rule 15, Rule 37a and Rule 51b (1), the genus name Bacteriolyticum Piñeiro et al. 2008 is illegitimate.
