Nakamurellaceae Tao et al. 2004, fam. nov.
Type genus: ¤ Nakamurella Tao et al. 2004, gen. nov.
Illegitimate synonym: ¤ Microsphaeraceae Rainey et al. 1997.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Nakamurella, type genus of the family; suff. -aceae, ending to denote a family; N.L. fem. pl. n. Nakamurellaceae, the Nakamurella family.
Valid publication: 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. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2004, 54, 999-1000.

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.
