¤ Lentzea albidocapillata Yassin et al. 1995.

Note: Lee et al. 2000 [1] suggested that ¤ Lentzea albidocapillata Yassin et al. 1995, the type species of the genus ¤ Lentzea Yassin et al. 1995, be transferred to the genus Saccharothrix Labeda et al. 1984. Phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic data do not support this proposal and, according to Labeda et al. 2001 [2], Lentzea is considered to be the current correct name of a genus in which the type species is Lentzea albidocapillata.
