Yania Li et al. 2004, gen. nov. (Type genus of the family ¤ Yaniaceae Li et al. 2005).
Type species: ¤ Yania halotolerans Li et al. 2004.
Etymology: N.L. fem. n. Yania, named after Xun-Chu Yan (1912-1994), a Chinese microbiologist who devoted his life to the study of actinomycete taxonomy and antibiotics.
Valid publication: LI (W.J.), CHEN (H.H.), XU (P.), ZHANG (Y.Q.), SCHUMANN (P.), TANG (S.K.), XU (L.H.) and JIANG (C.L.): Yania halotolerans gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel member of the suborder Micrococcineae from saline soil in China. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2004, 54, 525-531.

Note: The full name of the late Professor Yan must be Xun-Chu Yan, not Sun-Chu Yan as cited in the paper by Li et al. 2004.

Yania Li et al. 2004 emend. Li et al. 2005.
Type species: ¤ Yania halotolerans Li et al. 2004.

¤ Yaniella Li et al. 2008, gen. nov.

Note: The name Yania Li et al. 2004 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Yania Roewer 1919 (Opiliones, Arachnida, Arthropoda, Animalia), and a later homonym of Yania Huang 1997 (Hesperiidae, Papilionoidea, Heteroneura, Glossata, Lepidoptera, Insecta, Arthropoda, Animalia). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation ¤ Yaniella Li et al. 2008 has been proposed by Li et al. 2008.
Reference: LI (W.J.), ZHI (X.Y.) and EUZÉBY (J.P.): Proposal of Yaniellaceae fam. nov., Yaniella gen. nov. and Sinobaca gen. nov. as replacements for the illegitimate prokaryotic names Yaniaceae Li et al. 2005, Yania Li et al. 2004, emend Li et al. 2005, and Sinococcus Li et al. 2006, respectively.
