Note: According to the Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision), it is unclear whether the name Falsibacillus pallidus should be treated as a new species name (sp. nov.), a new name (nom. nov.), or a new combination (comb. nov.). In the paper by Zhou et al. 2009, the authors described it as new combination, temporarily.
