This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Gleeocapsaceae"; "Glococapsaceae".
Gloeocapsaceae is the correct name if this family is regarded as a separate family (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another family whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
