homotypic synonym, validly published, illegitimate name
The type species of this genus has alternatively been placed in the genus Saccharothrix Labeda et al. 1984.Publication:
Kroppenstedt RM, Stackebrandt E, Goodfellow M. Taxonomic revision of the actinomycete genera Actinomadura and Microtetraspora. Syst. Appl. Microbiol. 1990; 13:148-160.
The type species of this genus has alternatively been placed in the genus Goodfellowia Labeda and Kroppenstedt 2006.Publication:
Labeda DP, Kroppenstedt RM. Goodfellowia gen. nov., a new genus of the Pseudonocardineae related to Actinoalloteichus, containing Goodfellowia coeruleoviolacea gen. nov., comb. nov. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2006; 56:1203-1207.
The type species of this genus has alternatively been placed in the genus Actinomadura Lechevalier and Lechevalier 1970 (Approved Lists 1980).Publication:
Preobrazhenskaia TP, Terekhova LP, Laiko AV, Selezneva TI, Zenkova VA. [New species of Actinomadura coeruleoviolacea sp. nov. and its antagonistic properties]. Antibiotiki 1976; 21:779-784.
Goodfellowia Labeda and Kroppenstedt 2006 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Goodfellowia Hartert 1903 (Animalia, Chordata, Aves, Passeriformes, Sturnidae). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation Goodfellowiella has been proposed by Labeda et al. 2008.
