Note: When placed in the genus ¤ Deleya, ¤ Deleya aesta, ¤ Alcaligenes aquamarinus and ¤ Alcaligenes faecalis subsp. homari are considered to be heterotypic synonyms. Despite the fact that ¤ Alcaligenes aquamarinus is the earlier synonym, ¤ Deleya aesta Baumann et al. 1983 has priority as nomenclatural type of the genus ¤ Deleya (Rules 15 and 17). However, when placed in the genus Halomonas, ¤ Alcaligenes aquamarinus, ¤ Alcaligenes faecalis subsp. homari and ¤ Deleya aesta are considered to be heterotypic synonyms. The earlier synonym does have priority [Rule 41a(2)] and the correct combination is Halomonas aquamarina (ZoBell and Upham 1944) Dobson and Franzmann 1996.

Note:
During the course of studies on halophilic, Gram-negative bacteria, a comparison of two strains of halophilic bacteria, ¤ Pseudomonas halophila DSM 3050 (type strain of the species) and Halomonas variabilis (basonym ¤ Halovibrio variabilis) DSM 3051 (type strain of the species) demonstrated that the characteristics of strain DSM 3050 corresponded to the original description of Halomonas variabilis (basonym ¤ Halovibrio variabilis) and those of DSM 3051 to ¤ Pseudomonas halophila [1].
Based on data collected, Sorokin and Tindall 2006 [2] conclude that DSM 3051 is clearly a member of the genus Halomonas, and that DSM 3050 clearly is not a member of the genus Halomonas.
In a Request for an Opinion, Sorokin and Tindall 2006 [2] propose that the following steps should be undertaken by the Judicial Comission.
(i) The type of the name ¤ Halovibrio variabilis Fendrich 1989 is to be regarded as DSM 3050, not as currently published DSM 3051.
(ii) The circumscription of the genus ¤ Halovibrio should be emended as proposed by Sorokin et al. 2006.
(iii) This would also have the effect of placing members of the genus ¤ Halovibrio outside of the genus Halomonas and would mean that the names ¤ Halovibrio variabilis and Halomonas variabilis cannot be treated as synonyms.
(iv) DSM 3051 should be recognized as the type strain of ¤ Pseudomonas halophila.
(v) The species name Halomonas variabilis (Fendrich 1989) Dobson and Franzmann 1996 is to be rejected, because it was created in the belief that ¤ Halovibrio variabilis was correctly represented by DSM 3051.
(vi) Recognition of DSM 3051 as the type strain of ¤ Pseudomonas halophila would mean that data collected for this strain indicate that it should be properly placed (at least at present) within the genus Halomonas. However, the name Halomonas halophila already exists [¤ Halomonas halophila (Quesada et al. 1984) Dobson and Franzmann 1996] and it would be necessary to create a new name (nomen novum) to reflect this taxonomic interpretation. Sorokin and Tindall propose the combination "Halomonas utahensis" nom. nov. (homotypic synonym ¤ Pseudomonas halophila) to accommodate strain DSM 3051, with the current authors (and date) being the authority of the name. The type strain is DSM 3051.
(vii) Given the special circumstances under which the data were collected and published, Sorokin and Tindall 2006 also request that the Judicial Commission recognize that the species name ¤ Halovibrio denitrificans was validly published by Sorokin et al. 2006.
