Notes:
1 Roseospira mediosalina was previously known as "Rhodospirillum mediosalinum" Kompantseva and Gorlenko 1984.
2 In the paper by Imhoff et al. 1998, this name is cited as Roseospira mediosalina (Kompantseva and Gorlenko 1984) Imhoff et al. 1998, comb. nov. However, the name "Rhodospirillum mediosalinum" Kompantseva and Gorlenko 1984 has not been validly published and Roseospira mediosalina is a new species not a new combination.
3 The type strain is currently not available from a recognized culture collection.
