Abstract

The consensus of the members of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes' Subcommittee on the taxonomy of is that recently proposed sweeping changes to nomenclature of members of the , specifically involving introduction of the names gen. nov., gen. nov., gen. nov., fam. nov., fam. nov., ord. nov., gen. nov., gen. nov., and all proposed species or subspecies comb. nov. placed therein, should be rejected because they violate one or more essential points of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.
