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:
Warwick S, Bowen T, McVeigh H, Embley TM. A phylogenetic analysis of the family Pseudonocardiaceae and the genera Actinokineospora and Saccharothrix with 16S rRNA sequences and a proposal to combine the genera Amycolata and Pseudonocardia in an emended genus Pseudonocardia. Int J Syst Bacteriol 1994; 44:293-299.
This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Amycofata"; "Amycolufa"; "Arnycolata".
Amycolata 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).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: DSM: 5; NBRC: 4; JCM: 4; IFO: 4; VKM: 4; ATCC: 3; NRRL: 3; CIP: 1.
Pittman et al. (1991) suggested the abbreviation "AMCT" for this genus name but this does not appear to be of practical relevance any longer.Publication:
