Microsphaera Yoshimi et al. 1996, gen. nov. (Type genus of the family ¤ Microsphaeraceae Rainey et al. 1997).
Type species: ¤ Microsphaera multipartita Yoshimi et al. 1996.
Reference: YOSHIMI (Y.), HIRAISHI (A.) and NAKAMURA (K.): Isolation and characterization of Microsphaera multipartita gen. nov., sp. nov., a polysaccharide-accumulating gram-positive bacterium from activated sludge. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1996, 46, 519-525.

¤ Nakamurella Tao et al. 2004, gen. nov.

Note: The name Microsphaera Yoshimi et al. 1996 is illegitimate because of precedence of the fungal genus Microsphaera (Wallr.) Léveillé 1851 [Principle 2, Rule 51b(4)]. Consequently, a new genus designation ¤ Nakamurella has been proposed by Tao et al. 2004.
Reference: TAO (T.S.), YUE (Y.Y.), CHEN (W.X.) and CHEN (W.F.): Proposal of Nakamurella gen. nov. as a substitute for the bacterial genus Microsphaera Yoshimi et al. 1996 and Nakamurellaceae fam. nov. as a substitute for the illegitimate bacterial family Microsphaeraceae Rainey et al. 1997.
