Abstract
We here present annotated lists of names ofCandidatustaxa of prokaryotes with ranks between subspecies and class, proposed between the mid-1990s, when the provisional status ofCandidatustaxa was first established, and the end of 2018. Where necessary, corrected names are proposed that comply with the current provisions of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes and its Orthography appendix. These lists, as well as updated lists of newly published names ofCandidatustaxa with additions and corrections to the current lists to be published periodically in theInternational Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, may serve as the basis for the valid publication of theCandidatusnames if and when the current proposals to expand the type material for naming of prokaryotes to also include gene sequences of yet-uncultivated taxa is accepted by the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes.
