Abstract

The new name at the rank of family Garrity 2006 was created to include the genera Brenner 1992, Ohta and Hattori 1985, Zavarzin 1961 (Approved Lists 1980), Das 1996, Jordan 1982 (the nomenclatural type), Winogradsky 1892 (Approved Lists 1980), Meyer 1994, Imhoff 2001 and Czurda and Maresch 1937 (Approved Lists 1980). However, Winogradsky 1892 (Approved Lists 1980) is the nomenclatural type of Buchanan 1917 (Approved Lists 1980) a name at the rank of family that was validly published prior to the valid publication of Garrity 2006 and has priority. In addition Rule 51b (1) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes rules that under these circumstances Garrity 2006 is an illegitimate name. Illegitimate names may not be used (Rule 51a) and illegitimate names are also not taken into consideration when determining priority (Rule 23a). Buchanan 1917 (Approved Lists 1980) is the only correct name (Rule 23a). Despite these facts the name Garrity 2006 continues to be used, perhaps because the fact that it is an illegitimate name and the consequences of that status are not fully understood. A revision of Rule 54 would also appear to be appropriate in order to further emphasise the fact that the family name Garrity 2006 must be replaced by the family name Buchanan 1917 (Approved Lists 1980), which is the oldest legitimate name and is the only correct name that may be used for the taxon that includes Jordan 1982 and Winogradsky 1892 (Approved Lists 1980).
