Abstract Thi.o.ha.lo.bac.ter.a.ce'ae N.L. masc. n. Thiohalobacter , the type genus of the family, ‐ aceae ending to denote a family; N.L. fem. pl. n. Thiohalobacteraceae the Thiohalobacter family. Proteobacteria / Gammaproteobacteria / Thiohalobacterales / Thiohalobacteraceae fam. nov. The family Thiohalobacteraceae consists of aerobic, chemolithoautotrophic, sulfur‐oxidizing bacteria from hypersaline salt lakes. They are moderately halophilic aerobic, bacteria utilizing reduced sulfur compounds as the energy source and assimilating CO 2 via the Calvin–Benson–Bassham cycle. The family is a member of the order Thiohalobacterales within the Gammaproteobacteria and consists of a single genus Thiohalobacter . The family‐level status was established by phylogenomic analysis based on the Genome Taxonomy DataBase classification. DNA G + C content (%) : 64.2 (genome sequence). Type genus : Thiohalobacter Sorokin et al. 2010 VP .
