What's the difference between ;__ and ;g__ in Greengene database?

Hi everyone,
When I used greengene for taxonomy classification, the results contains results as follows:

k__Bacteria;p__Bacteroidetes;c__Bacteroidia;o__Bacteroidales;f__[Paraprevotellaceae];__

k__Bacteria;p__Bacteroidetes;c__Bacteroidia;o__Bacteroidales;f__[Paraprevotellaceae];g__

I am confused with the difference between these two results. Also, I don’t know what the [] stand for. I’ve searched online but got no answers, so I posted my questions here for help. It would be really appreciated if anyone could give me the answer.
