Abstract

The prokaryotic generic names Holzapfelia Zheng et al. 2020 and Litoricola Kim et al. 2007 are illegitimate because they are later homonyms of the names Holzapfelia Cossmann 1901, an extinct genus of molluscs (Neogastropoda) and Litoricola Woodward 1873, an extinct genus of crustaceans (Arthropoda), respectively (Principle 2 and Rule 51b(4) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes). We therefore propose the replacement generic name Holzapfeliella with type species Holzapfeliella floricola comb. nov. and the replacement generic name Litorivicinus with replacement name Litorivicinus lipolyticus for the type species, the replacement name Litorivicinus marinus, and the family name Litorivicinaceae to replace the illegitimate name Litoricolaceae Kim et al. 2007.
