¤ Jeotgalibacillus Yoon et al. 2001.

Note: Yoon et al. 2010 propose to transfer Marinibacillus marinus (Rüger and Richter 1979) Yoon et al. 2001 (the type species of the genus Marinibacillus) to the genus ¤ Jeotgalibacillus Yoon et al. 2001 as ¤ Jeotgalibacillus marinus (Rüger and Richter 1979) Yoon et al. 2010, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Marinibacillus to ¤ Jeotgalibacillus.
Reference: YOON (J.H.), KANG (S.J.), SCHUMANN (P.) and OH (T.K.): Jeotgalibacillus salarius sp. nov., isolated from a marine saltern, and reclassification of Marinibacillus marinus and Marinibacillus campisalis as Jeotgalibacillus marinus comb. nov. and Jeotgalibacillus campisalis comb. nov., respectively.

Notes:
1 According to Rules 27(3) and 30, this name is not validly published because the effective publication only documents deposit of the type strain in a single recognized culture collection. However, according to the Judicial Opinion 81, Marinibacillus marinus (Rüger and Richter 1979) Yoon et al. 2001 is to be considered to be validly published.
