Note: Kim et al. 2012 propose to transfer Humicoccus flavidus Yoon et al. 2007 (the type species of the genus Humicoccus ) to the genus ¤ Nakamurella as ¤ Nakamurella flavida (Yoon et al. 2007) Kim et al. 2012, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Humicoccus to ¤ Nakamurella.
