¤ Sulfitobacter Sorokin 1996.

Note: Yoon et al. 2007 propose to transfer ¤ Staleya guttiformis Labrenz et al. 2000 (the type species of the genus Staleya) to the genus ¤ Sulfitobacter as ¤ Sulfitobacter guttiformis (Labrenz et al. 2000) Yoon et al. 2007, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Staleya to ¤ Sulfitobacter.
