The names Bang et al., Baumann et al., and Harwood were not included in the recently published Approved Lists of Bacterial Names and hence have no standing in bacteriological nomenclature. However, these names are here revived for the same organisms with which they were originally associated and, by this action, now have valid status. According to the current rules of nomenclature, the authors of this present proposal, not the original authors, are to be cited as the authors of these names.
