Abstract Thi.o.ha.lo.rhab.da.ce'ae N.L. fem. n. Thiohalorhabdus , the type genus of the family; L. fem. pl. n. suff.‐ aceae , ending to denote a family; N.L. fem. pl. n. Thiohalorhabdaceae , the Thiohalorhabdus family. Proteobacteria / Gammaproteobacteria / Thiohalorhabdales / Thiohalorhabdaceae fam. nov. The family Thiohalorhabdaceae incorporates facultatively anaerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfur‐oxidizing bacteria from hypersaline habitats. They are extreme halophiles utilizing reduced sulfur compounds as energy sources with either O 2 or nitrate as the electron acceptor and assimilating CO 2 via the Calvin–Benson–Bassham cycle. The family is a member of the order Thiohalorhabdales in the Gammaproteobacteria, and it consists of a single genus Thiohalorhabdus . The family‐level status was established by phylogenomic analysis based on the Genome Taxonomy DataBase classification. DNA G  +  C content (%) : 68.9 (genome of the type strain). Type genus : Thiohalorhabdus Sorokin et al. 2008 VP .
