Abstract

The prokaryotic generic names Muricauda Bruns et al. 2001 and Franklinella Bernard et al. 2022 are illegitimate because they are later homonyms of the genus names Muricauda Small 1903 (synonym of Arisaema; Tracheophyta – Liliopsida – Araceae) and Franklinella Stewart and Hendrix 1945 (a Devonian ostracod genus) and Franklinella Lenz 1973 (a Devonian brachiopod genus), respectively (Principle 2 and Rule 51b(4) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes). We therefore propose the replacement generic names Allomuricauda and Allofranklinella, with type species Allomuricauda ruestringensis and Allofranki-nella schreckenbergeri, respectively.
