Type species: ¤ Lentzea albidocapillata Yassin et al. 1995.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Lentzea, named after Friedrich A. Lentze, a German microbiologist who devoted a considerable part of his life to studying pathogenic actinomycetes.
Valid publication: YASSIN (A.F.), RAINEY (F.A.), BRZEZINKA (H.), JAHNKE (K.D.), WEISSBRODT (H.), BUDZIKIEWICZ (H.), STACKEBRANDT (E.) and SCHAAL (K.P.): Lentzea gen. nov., a new genus of the order Actinomycetales. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1995, 45, 357-363.

¤ Saccharothrix Labeda et al. 1984.

Note: Lee et al. 2000 propose to transfer ¤ Lentzea albidocapillata Yassin et al. 1995 (the type species of the genus Lentzea) to the genus ¤ Saccharothrix as ¤ Saccharothrix albidocapillata (Yassin et al. 1995) Lee et al. 2000, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Lentzea to ¤ Saccharothrix.

Type species: ¤ Lentzea albidocapillata Yassin et al. 1995.

Note: Lee et al. 2000 [1] suggested that Lentzea albidocapillata Yassin et al. 1995, the type species of the genus Lentzea, be transferred to the genus ¤ Saccharothrix Labeda et al. 1984, thus effectively abolishing this genus under the Rule 37a. Phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic data do not support this proposal and, according to Labeda et al. 2001 [2], Lentzea is considered to be the current correct name. However, according to Rules 28a and 33c, Lentzea is not a revived name as proposed by Labeda et al. 2001 [2].

Notes:
1 Lentzea albida Labeda et al. 2001 was previously known as "Asiosporangium albidum" Runmao et al. 1995.

According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Saccharothrix aerocolonigenes subsp. staurosporea to Lentzea albida.
