Taxonomy

Description
Members of this taxon were identified at Mariner on the Valu Fa Ridge in the Lau Basin and Lucky Strike, Mid-Atlantic Ridge. A phylogenomic reconstruction using 53 archaeal marker genes places MAGs of this genus in a well-supported monophyletic clade. Using AAI, MAGs are approximately 56% similar to Aeropyrum pernix, and they could not be related to any previously described genus using GTDB-Tk taxonomic analysis. The 16S rRNA gene recovered from the type genome is approximately 96 to 97% similar to the 16S rRNA genes of Aeropyrum pernix, Aeropyrum camini, Thermodiscus maritimus and Stetteria hydrogenophila, consistent with the level of 16S rRNA gene sequence divergence seen between the genera Aeropyrum, Stetteria and Thermodiscus (~96–97%). Based on ANI analysis, each of the three MAGs in this genus represents a distinct species (~73–75% similarity). Functional gene analysis suggests that members of this genus are likely non-motile anaerobes, and they may utilize protein-rich carbon sources and at least one member may reduce sulfur, thiosulfate, polysulfides or selenite.
