Sinococcus Li et al. 2006, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Sinococcus qinghaiensis Li et al. 2006.
Etymology: M.L. n. Sina, China; N.L. masc. n. coccus (from Gr. n. kokkos), a grain or berry; N.L. masc. n. Sinococcus, coccus-shaped microbe isolated from places in China.
Valid publication: LI (W.J.), ZHANG (Y.Q.), SCHUMANN (P.), TIAN (X.P.), ZHANG (Y.Q.), XU (L.H.) and JIANG (C.L.): Sinococcus qinghaiensis gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel member of the order Bacillales from a saline soil in China. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2006, 56, 1189-1192.

¤ Sinobaca Li et al. 2008, gen. nov.

Note: The name Sinococcus Li et al. 2006 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Sinococcus Wu & Zheng, 2000 (Insecta: Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha: Coccoidea: Pseudococcidae). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation ¤ Sinobaca Li et al. 2008 has been proposed by Li et al. 2008.
