We propose that the order Florenzano, Balloni, and Materassi 1986 (emend. Burger-Wiersma, Stal, and Mur 1989), the family Florenzano, Balloni, and Materassi 1986, and the family Burger-Wiersma, Stal, and Mur 1989, validly published in the under the rules of the Bacteriological Code, be rejected because of the imperfection of ordinal diagnosis. The oxygenic-phototrophic prokaryotes involved are proposed to be incorporated under their validly published names into the orders and of the “Cyanobacteria” group. Correspondingly, the latter is proposed to be upgraded to equal “Oxygenic photosynthetic bacteria” (Section 19 in ).
