The type genus of this family has been placed in the family Moraxellaceae Rossau et al. 1991.Publication:
Rossau R, Van Landschoot A, Gillis M, De Ley J. Taxonomy of Moraxellaceae fam. nov., a new bacterial family to accommodate the genera Moraxella, Acinetobacter, and Psychrobacter and related organisms. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol. 1991; 41:310-319.
Branhamaceae Catlin 1991 is illegitimate because Moraxella is included and Moraxellaceae has priority.
Irregularly formed name. The expected name to be formed from Branhamella would be "Branhamellaceae".
