List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) is an online database that maintains information on the naming and taxonomy of prokaryotes,[1] following the taxonomy requirements and rulings of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.[2] The database was curated from 1997 to June 2013 by Jean P. Euzéby.[3] From July 2013 to January 2020, LPSN was curated by Aidan C. Parte.[2]

In February 2020, LPSN was integrated with the Prokaryotic Nomenclature Up-to-date service at the Leibniz Institute DSMZ.
