Notes:
1 The original spelling of the specific epithet aegyptiaca, has been corrected by the List Editor, IJSEM.
Reference: LIST EDITOR, IJSEM: Notification that new names and new combinations have appeared in volume 51, part 3, of the IJSEM. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol. 2001, 51, 1231-1233.

2 The Lists Editor has corrected the original spelling of the specific epithet aegyptiaca to aegyptia. However, the Latin adjective aegyptiacus -a -um has been used by Aulus Gellius (a grammarian of the second century A.D.) and, later, by Saint Jerome. Examples (i) Aulus Gellius: Noctes Atticae, Liber X, paragraph 10: Causam esse huius rei Apion in libris aegyptiacis hanc dicit, ... (ii) Saint Jerome: Latin Vulgate, Genesis 41, 45 ... et vocavit eum lingua aegyptiaca ...
3 The Subcommittee on the taxonomy of Halobacteriaceae recommendes the use of the name Natrialba aegyptiaca.
