Effective publication: MURDOCH (D.A.) and SHAH (H.N.): Reclassification of Peptostreptococcus magnus (Prevot 1933) Holdeman and Moore 1972 as Finegoldia magna comb. nov. and Peptostreptococcus micros (Prevot 1933) Smith 1957 as Micromonas micros comb. nov. Anaerobe, 1999, 5, 555-559.

Notes:
1 According to Rule 65 (2),the genus name Micromonas must be in the feminine gender, not in the masculine gender as cited in the paper by Murdoch and Shah 2000.
2 The name Micromonas Murdoch and Shah 2000 is illegitimate because of precedence of a microalga Micromonas I. Manton and M. Parke (Eukaryota; Viridiplantae; Chlorophyta; Prasinophyceae; Mamiellales; Mamiellaceae; Micromonas; Micromonas pusilla). See: Principle 2 and Rule 51b(4).

¤ Parvimonas Tindall and Euzéby 2006, gen. nov.

Note: The name Micromonas Murdoch and Shah 2000 is illegitimate because of precedence of the algal genus name, Micromonas I. Manton and M. Parke 1960 [Rule 51b(4)]. Consequently, a new genus designation ¤ Parvimonas has been validly published by Tindall and Euzéby 2006.
