Abstract:As an addendum to the earlier proposal to include the rank of phylum in the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (Oren et al., Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2015;65:4284-4287) we propose the suffix -ota to denote phyla, replacing the somewhat awkward -aeota. We therefore present a new draft modified version of Rule 8 of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes and a corrected list of names of phyla to be considered for validation after approval of the proposal to include the rank of phylum in the Code.
