Abstract

The recently proposed genus Allomuricauda Deshmukh and Oren 2023 is illegitimate because it includes the type species of the genera Flagellimonas Bae et al. 2007 and Spongiibacterium Yoon and Oh 2012, contravening Rule 51b(1) of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes. As Flagellimonas Bae et al. 2007 is the earlier described genus, we here reclassify 36 species earlier described as belonging to the illegitimate genus Muricauda as species of Flagellimonas. We also present an emended description of the genus Flagellimonas.
