¤ Kosmotoga DiPippo et al. 2009.

Note: Nunoura et al. 2013 propose to transfer ¤ Thermococcoides shengliensis Feng et al. 2010 (the type species of the genus Thermococcoides Feng et al. 2010) to the genus ¤ Kosmotoga DiPippo et al. 2009 as ¤ Kosmotoga shengliensis (Feng et al. 2010) Nunoura et al. 2013, comb. nov. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name Thermococcoides to ¤ Kosmotoga.
