The type order of this class has alternatively been placed in the class Schizomycetes Nägeli 1857 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Parker CD. Genus V. Thiobacillus Beijerinck 1904. In: Breed RS, Murray EGD, Smith NR (eds), Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, 7th edition, The Williams & Wilkins Co, Baltimore, 1957, p. 83-88.
This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Mollicules".
Irregularly formed name (not formed from the stem of the name of the nomenclatural type).
The class Mollicutes may be regarded as in conflict with Rules 15, 22 and 27(3) because it was proposed without the designation of a nomenclatural type. However, according to Tindall (2014) the type is Mycoplasmatales even though it was not mentioned in the Approved Lists.Publication:
