Sinobacteraceae Zhou et al. 2008, fam. nov.
Type genus: ¤ Sinobacter Zhou et al. 2008.
Etymology: N.L. masc. n. Sinobacter, type genus of the family; suff. -aceae, ending to denote a family; N.L. fem. pl. n. Sinobacteraceae, the Sinobacter family.
Valid publication: ZHOU (Y.), ZHANG (Y.Q.), ZHI (X.Y.), WANG (X.), DONG (J.), CHEN (Y.), LAI (R.) and LI (W.J.): Description of Sinobacter flavus gen. nov., sp. nov., and proposal of Sinobacteraceae fam. nov. Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 2008, 58, 184-189.

Note: Sheu et al. 2011 propose to transfer the type species of the type genus of the family Sinobacteraceae in the genus ¤ Solimonas. According to Rule 37a, bacteriologists adhering to this proposal must change the name ¤ Sinobacter to ¤ Solimonas.
With the now defunct name Sinobacter there is now an inconsistency in the nomenclature with the name Sinobacteraceae. Therefore, Losey et al. 2013 propose the name ¤ Solimonadaceae fam. nov. to include members of the genera ¤ Solimonas and ¤ Fontimonas.
