Cavalier-Smith and Chao (2020) assigned this class to the subphylum "Rhodobacteria" Cavalier-Smith 2002.Publication:

Cavalier-Smith and Chao (2020) proposed the genus name Mariprofundus Emerson et al. 2010 as the nomenclatural type of the class based on the reasoning that Mariprofundales Makita et al. 2010 is not validly published. However, the ICNP did at that time not permit genus names as nomenclatural types of classes. Cavalier-Smith and Chao 2020 could have proposed the name of an order to serve as the nomenclatural type of class.Publication:
