Sporotalea Boga et al. 2007, gen. nov.
Type species: ¤ Sporotalea propionica Boga et al. 2007.
Etymology: Gr. n. spora, a seed and in biology a spore; L. fem. n. talea, a thin rod or stick; N.L. fem. n. Sporotalea, a spore-forming, stick-shaped bacterium.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 115. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2007, 57, 893-897.
Effective publication: BOGA (H.I.), JI (R.), LUDWIG (W.) and BRUNE (A.): Sporotalea propionica gen. nov. sp. nov., a hydrogen-oxidizing, oxygen-reducing, propionigenic firmicute from the intestinal tract of a soil-feeding termite. Arch. Microbiol., 2007, 187, 15-27.

¤ Pelosinus Shelobolina et al. 2007

Note: Moe et al. 2012 propose to transfer ¤ Sporotalea propionica Boga et al. 2007, the type species of the genus Sporotalea, to the genus ¤ Pelosinus as ¤ Pelosinus propionicus (Boga et al. 2007) Moe et al. 2012, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Sporotalea to ¤ Pelosinus.
