The type order of this class has been placed in the class Thermotogae Reysenbach 2002.Publication:

The type order "Thermotogales" Huber and Stetter 1992 does not appear on the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names, and was not validly published when Cavalier-Smith proposed the class Togobacteria (January 14, 2002). The order Thermotogales Reysenbach 2002 (previously known as "Thermotogales" Huber and Stetter 1992) was validly published in the May 2002 issue of the IJSEM (Validation List no. 85). Consequently, Togobacteria Cavalier-Smith 2002 is illegitimate. — Togobacteria was previously known as "Togobacteria" Cavalier-Smith 1992.Publication:
Anonymous. Validation list no. 85. List of new names and new combinations previously effectively, but not validly, published. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2002; 52:685-690.
