Muricoccus Kämpfer et al. 2003, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Muricoccus roseus Kämpfer et al. 2003.
Etymology: L. n. murus, a wall; N.L. masc. n. coccus (from Gr. masc. n. kokkos, grain, seed), coccus; N.L. masc. n. Muricoccus, coccus from the wall.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 92. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2003, 53, 935-937.
Effective publication: KÄMPFER (P.), ANDERSSON (M.A.), JÄCKEL (U.) and SALKINOJA-SALONEN (M.): Teichococcus ludipueritiae gen. nov. sp. nov., and Muricoccus roseus gen. nov. sp. nov. representing two new genera of the α-1 subclass of the Proteobacteria. Syst. Appl. Microbiol., 2003, 26, 23-29.

Note: The etymology cited in the effective publication (Gr. n. mura, wall; Gr. N. kokkos, a grain or berry; masc. n. Muricoccus, coccus from the wall) has been corrected to L. masc. n. murus, wall; Gr. masc. n. kokkos, a grain; N.L. masc. n. Muricoccus, a coccus from a wall.

¤ Roseomonas Rihs et al. 1998.

Note: Sánchez-Porro et al. 2009 propose to transfer Muricoccus roseus Kämpfer et al. 2003 (the type species of the genus Muricoccus) to the genus ¤ Roseomonas as ¤ Roseomonas rosea (Kämpfer et al. 2003) Sánchez-Porro et al. 2009, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Muricoccus to ¤ Roseomonas.
