Appendix 9, Section E of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes provides guidelines on how to form adjec-tival specific and subspecific epithets that reflect the geographical location where the organism was found or studied. It does not mention ways of naming genera after geographical locations. We here propose emendation of Appendix 9 with the recommendations on how to form such names. Comments on the implementation of the current wording of Appendix 9, Section E are also made.
