This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Mdhanomicrobiales"; "Metharlomicrobiales"; "Metharwmicrobiales"; "Mrthanomicrobiales".
The authority of the taxon name (Balch and Wolfe) deliberately differs from the authors of the publication (Balch et al.).
The BRCs most frequently used for deposits in this group are: DSM: 66; ATCC: 28; JCM: 15; NBRC: 11; BCRC: 5; CGMCC: 3; CCRC: 2; VKM: 2.
