Abstract

The prokaryotic generic name Membranicola Li et al. 2016 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of the name Mem-branicola Foissner, Berger and Schaumburg 1999 (Tintinnidae) (Principle 2 and Rule 51b(4) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes). We therefore propose the replacement generic name Membranihabitans with type species Membranihabitans marinus comb. nov.
