Kluyver and van Niel, Kluyver and van Niel, and Sijpestein have recently been placed in the family Rogosa. Because Goodsir also comprises gram-positive, anaerobic cocci whose general metabolism and other characteristics are consistent with the characteristics of , it is herein proposed that the genus Goodsir be transferred from Pribram to Rogosa.
