The type order of this class has alternatively been placed in the class Bacilli Ludwig et al. 2010.Publication:
Ludwig W, Schleifer K-H, Whitman WB. Class I. Bacilli class nov. In: De Vos P, Garrity GM, Jones D, Krieg NR, Ludwig W, Rainey FA, K.-H. S, Whitman WB (eds), Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, 2nd edn, vol. 3 (The Firmicutes), Springer, New York, 2009, p. 19-20.
Firmibacteria is the correct name if this class is regarded as a separate class (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another class whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
