Micromonospora aurantiaca Sveshnikova et al. 1969 is illegitimate because the epithet aurantiaca is the same as the subspecific epithet aurantiaca in Micromonospora carbonacea subsp. aurantiaca Luedemann and Brodsky 1964 (Opinion 89, Judicial Commission of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes, IJSEM 64:3580-3581).Publication:

The genome of the type strain was sequenced as part of the GEBA (Genomic Encyclopedia of Bacteria and Archaea) project.Publication:

The names Micromonospora aurantiaca (Sveshnikova et al., 1969) and Micromonospora carbonacea subsp. aurantiaca (Luedemann and Brodsky, 1965) were included in the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names. According to Rule 12b of the Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision) no specific or subspecific epithets within the same genus may be the same if based on different types. Consequently, Euzéby and Tindall request the replacement of the specific epithet aurantiaca in Micromonospora aurantiaca and they suggest sandarakina. They also request the rejection of the specific epithet aurantiaca in Micromonospora aurantiaca. This request was addressed in Opinion 89.Publication:
