The prokaryotic genus name Chaudhary 2018 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of the plant genus name Ehrhart 1789 [Principle 2 of the Prokaryotic Code (2008 Revision)]. This name is therefore not a correct name (Principle 6). Based on Rule 54 we propose the replacement name with as the type species.
