Elytrosporangium Falcão de Morais et al. 1966, genus.
Type species: ¤ Elytrosporangium brasiliense corrig. Falcão de Morais et al. 1966 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: Gr. n. elutron, sheath, capsule; N.L. n. sporangium [from Gr. n. spora, a seed (and in biology a spore), and Gr. n. angeion (Latin transliteration angium), vessel], sporangium; N.L. neut. n. Elytrosporangium, an organism with sheathed sporangium.

¤ Streptomyces Waksman and Henrici 1943 (Approved Lists 1980).

Note: Goodfellow et al. 1986 propose to transfer ¤ Elytrosporangium brasiliense corrig. Falcão de Morais et al. 1966 (Approved Lists 1980), the type species of the genus Elytrosporangium, to the genus ¤ Streptomyces as ¤ Streptomyces brasiliensis (Falcão de Morais et al. 1966) Goodfellow et al. 1986, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Elytrosporangium to ¤ Streptomyces.
