For the type species of this genus another name is in use, which is affiliated with the genus Pseudonocardia Henssen 1957 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:

Actinobispora is the correct name if this genus is regarded as a separate genus (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another genus whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
