Abstract

The prokaryotic generic names Eoetvoesia Felföldi et al. 2014, Paludicola Li et al. 2017, Rivicola Sheu et al. 2014 and Sala Song et al. 2023 are illegitimate because they are later homonyms of the genus names Eoetvoesia Schulzer et al. 1866 (Ascomycota), Paludicola Wagler 1830 (Amphibia) and Paludicola Hodgson 1837 (Aves), Rivicola Fitzinger 1833 (Mollusca) and Sala Walker 1867 (Hemiptera) and the subgenus name Sala Ross 1937 (Hymenoptera), respectively (Principle 2 and Rule 51b(4) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes). We therefore propose the replacement generic names Eoetvoesiella, Paludihabitans, Rivihabitans and Salella, with type species Eoetvoesiella caeni, Paludihabitans psychrotolerans, Rivihabitans pingtungensis and Sallella cibi, respectively.
