¤ Nakamurellaceae Tao et al. 2004, fam. nov.

Note: The name Microsphaeraceae Rainey et al. 1997 is illegitimate because the type genus (¤ Microsphaera Yoshimi et al. 1996) is illegitimate (see ¤ Microsphaera). Consequently, a new family designation ¤ Nakamurellaceae has been proposed by Tao et al. 2004.
