¤ Spongiibacter Graeber et al. 2008.

Note: According to Jang et al. 2011, ¤ Melitea salexigens Urios et al. 2008, the type species of the genus Melitea, is a later heterotypic synonym of ¤ Spongiibacter marinus Graeber et al. 2008. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Melitea to ¤ Spongiibacter.
