Goodfellowia Labeda and Kroppenstedt 2006, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Goodfellowia coeruleoviolacea (Preobrazhenskaya and Terekhova 1987) Labeda and Kroppenstedt 2006.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Goodfellowia, named for Michael Goodfellow, a microbiologist at the University of Newcastle, in recognition of his contributions to microbial systematics.
Valid publication: LABEDA (D.P.) and KROPPENSTEDT (R.M.): Goodfellowia gen. nov., a new genus of the Pseudonocardineae related to Actinoalloteichus, containing Goodfellowia coeruleoviolacea gen. nov., comb. nov. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2006, 56, 1203-1207.

¤ Goodfellowiella Labeda et al. 2008, gen. nov.

Note: The name Goodfellowia Labeda and Kroppenstedt 2006 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Goodfellowia Hartert 1903 (Animalia, Chordata, Aves, Passeriformes, Sturnidae). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation ¤ Goodfellowiella Labeda et al. 2008 has been proposed by Labeda et al. 2008.
