¤ Virgibacillus Heyndrickx et al. 1998 emend. Heyrman et al. 2003.

Note: Heyrman et al. 2003 propose to transfer ¤ Salibacillus salexigens (Garabito et al. 1997) Wainø et al. 1999, the type species of the genus Salibacillus, to the genus ¤ Virgibacillus as ¤ Virgibacillus salexigens (Garabito et al. 1997) Heyrman et al. 2003, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Salibacillus to ¤ Virgibacillus.
