Geodermatophilaceae Normand 2006, fam. nov.
Type genus: ¤ Geodermatophilus Luedemann 1968 (Approved Lists 1980).
Etymology: N.L. masc. n. Geodermatophilus, type genus of the family; suff. -aceae, ending to denote a family; N.L. fem. pl. n. Geodermatophilaceae, the Geodermatophilus family.
Valid publication: NORMAND (P.): Geodermatophilaceae fam. nov., a formal description. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2006, 56, 2277-2278.

Notes:
1 The family name Geodermatophilaceae was first published by Normand et al. [1], but a formal description and the designation of the type genus were not included, thus making the name not validly published. On 31 July 2002, the Judicial Commission [2] decided that an erratum should be published in IJSEM to validly publish the name Geodermatophilaceae with ¤ Geodermatophilus as type genus of the family. In 2006, Normand [3] validly publishes the family name Geodermatophilaceae.
