We have recently (8th February 2018) published our article entitled “Molecular, biochemical and kinetic analysis of a novel, thermostable lipase (LipSm) from Stenotrophomonas maltophilia Psi-1, the first member of a new bacterial lipase family (XVIII)” [1]. While our manuscript was going through the final stages of publication, an article by Samoylova et al. [2] was published (12th January 2018) in the journal Extremophiles, entitled “Cloning, expression and characterization of the esterase estUT1 from Ureibacillus thermosphaericus which belongs to a new lipase family XVIII”. Since we could not have known of the work of Samoylova et al. [2] when we submitted our manuscript, and in order to avoid confusion in the scientific community, we propose to reclassify LipSm as the first characterized member of the new bacterial lipase family XIX. Therefore throughout our article [1] “lipase family XVIII” should read “lipase family XIX” (title included).
