Gibbons and Murray (1978) assigned the subclass "Oxyphotobacteriae" to this class.Publication:
Gibbons NE, Murray RGE. Proposals Concerning the Higher Taxa of Bacteria. International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology 1978; 28:1-6.
The type order of this class has been placed in the class Alphaproteobacteria Garrity et al. 2006.Publication:
Garrity GM, Bell JA, Lilburn T. Class I. Alphaproteobacteria class. nov. In: Brenner DJ, Krieg NR, Staley JT, Garrity GM (eds), Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, 2nd edn, vol. 2 (The Proteobacteria), part C (The Alpha-, Beta-, Delta-, and Epsilonproteobacteria), Springer, New York, 2005, p. 1.
This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Pholobacteria".
Irregularly formed name. Tindall (2014): "Not currently used as a class name; as applied by Gibbons and Murray (1978) the name encompasses those Gram-negative (i.e. Gram-stain-negative) prokaryotes that are capable of growing by oxygenic or anoxygenic photosynthesis.".Publication:

Illegitimate according to Tindall (2014). Tindall (2014) notes that the type order Rhodospirillales Pfennig and Trüper 1971 was provided in Gibbons and Murray (1978) but that this order was not included in the Approved Lists. Gibbons and Murray (1978) actually indicated Oxyphotobacteriae as type subclass of Photobacteria and Rhodospirillales as type order of Oxyphotobacteriae. But in contrast to Anoxyphotobacteriae Gibbons and Murray 1978, Oxyphotobacteriae was not included in the Approved Lists.Publication:
