Abstract Abstract. An extremely halophilic archaeon, previously named as Haloferax sp. strain Aa 2.2 or "Haloferax alicantei" that has been extensively used for genetic studies with halobacteria, was taxonomically characterized by using phenotypic tests (including morphological, physiological, biochemical and nutritional features), DNA-DNA hybridization and 16S rRNA sequence phylogenetic analysis. This organism was isolated in 1986 by Torreblanca et al. from a pond of a Spanish saltern located… 
Genome sequence and description of Haloferax massiliense sp. nov., a new halophilic archaeon isolated from the human gut
TLDR
The data herein represented confirm strain Arc-HrT as a unique species and consequently it is proposed its classification as representative of a novel species belonging to the genus Haloferax, asHaloferax massiliense sp.
Haloferax larsenii sp. nov., an extremely halophilic archaeon from a solar saltern.
TLDR
Three strains of Gram-negative, aerobic, neutrophilic, extremely halophilic archaea isolated from a solar saltern in Zhe-Jiang Province, China were isolated and classified as members of a novel species, for which the name Haloferax larsenii sp.
Haloferax litoreum sp. nov., Haloferax marinisediminis sp. nov., and Haloferax marinum sp. nov., low salt-tolerant haloarchaea isolated from seawater and sediment.
TLDR
Three novel halophilic archaea were isolated from seawater and sediment near Yeoungheungdo Island, Republic of Korea and were described as novel species of Haloferax, which were mainly related to amino acid transport and metabolism.
Haloferax prahovense sp. nov., an extremely halophilic archaeon isolated from a Romanian salt lake.
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the phenotypic properties and DNA-DNA hybridization between the novel strain and other species of the genus Haloferax strongly supported the conclusion that strain TL6T represents a novel species within this genus, for which the nameHaloferax prahovense sp.
Haloquadratum walsbyi gen. nov., sp. nov., the square haloarchaeon of Walsby, isolated from saltern crystallizers in Australia and Spain.
TLDR
The phenotypic characterization and phylogenetic data support the placement of isolates C23T and HBSQ001 in a novel species in a new genus within the Halobacteriaceae, for which the name Haloquadratum walsbyi is proposed.
Haloferax elongans sp. nov. and Haloferax mucosum sp. nov., isolated from microbial mats from Hamelin Pool, Shark Bay, Australia.

TLDR
Physiological properties, G+C content and polar lipid composition supported placement of both strains in the genus Haloferax and Phenotypic analysis indicated that the two strains were distinct from each other and from all other members of the genus.
Halonotius pteroides gen. nov., sp. nov., an extremely halophilic archaeon recovered from a saltern crystallizer.
TLDR
The phenotypic and phylogenetic data support the placement of these isolates into a novel species in a new genus within the Halobacteriaceae, for which the name Halonotius pteroides gen. nov is proposed.
Haloferax sulfurifontis sp. nov., a halophilic archaeon isolated from a sulfide- and sulfur-rich spring.
TLDR
DNA-DNA hybridization values, as well as biochemical and physiological characterization, allowed strain M6(T) to be differentiated from other members of the genus Haloferax.
Haloferax profundi sp. nov. and Haloferax marisrubri sp. nov., Isolated from the Discovery Deep Brine-Seawater Interface in the Red Sea
TLDR
Data indicate that the two new isolates from the brine-seawater interface of Discovery Deep in the Red Sea cannot be classified into any recognized species of the genus Haloferax, and, therefore, two novel species of that genus are proposed.
Halorubrum ejinorense sp. nov., isolated from Lake Ejinor, Inner Mongolia, China.
TLDR
Values for DNA-DNA hybridization with respect to phylogenetically related Halorubrum species were <or=49%, indicating that EJ-32T constitutes a different genospecies.

Halorhabdus utahensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an aerobic, extremely halophilic member of the Archaea from Great Salt Lake, Utah.
TLDR
16S rRNA analysis revealed that strain AX-2T was a member of the phyletic group defined by the family Halobacteriaceae, but there was a low degree of similarity to other members of this family.
Classification of Non-alkaliphilic Halobacteria Based on Numerical Taxonomy and Polar Lipid Composition, and Description of Haloarcula gen. nov. and Haloferax gen. nov.
TLDR
The results show the existence of at least three groups with the taxonomic level of genus Halobacterium, and propose the two new genera Haloarcula and Haloferax for the nomenclatural accomodation of the three groups.
Halobacterium mediterranei spec, nov., a New Carbohydrate-Utilizing Extreme Halophile.
TLDR
The extremely halophilic rod-shaped bacterium, strain R-4, has features very different from other known Halobacterium species, including a high excess of acidic over basic amino acids in its proteins, a cell wall lacking peptidoglycan, and ether-linked diphytanyl lipids.
Halobacterium volcanii spec. nov., a Dead Sea halobacterium with a moderate salt requirement
TLDR
The organism grew well in media containing magnesium chloride in the concentrations found in the Dead Sea; Halobacterium volcanii is therefore remarkably well fitted for life in theDead Sea.
Haloarcula hispanica spec. nov. and Haloferax gibbonsii spec, nov., Two New Species of Extremely Halophilic Archaebacteria
TLDR
Two strains, Y27 and MA2.38, representatives of the two most distinct new groups of Halobacteria were studied in detail, and two new species are proposed.
Purification and analysis of an extremely halophilic beta-galactosidase from Haloferax alicantei.
As a first step in the development of a reporter system for gene expression in halophilic archaea, a beta-galactosidase was purified 140-fold from Haloferax alicantei (previously phenon K, strain
Sequence and expression of a halobacterial β‐galactosidase gene
TLDR
The utility of bgaH as a promoter reporter in Halobacterium salinarum is demonstrated and the deduced amino acid sequence of BgaH was 665 amino acids (74 kDa) and showed greatest amino acid similarity to members of glycosyl hydrolase family 42.
Transfer of Halobacterium denitrificans (Tomlinson, Jahnke, and Hochstein) to the genus Haloferax as Haloferax denitrificans comb. nov.
TLDR
This organism exhibits features which indicate that it is more closely related to members of the genus Haloferax, and it is proposed that Halobacterium denitrificans be reclassified asHaloferax denitRificans comb.
Proposed Minimal Standards for Description of New Taxa in the Order Halobacteriales
TLDR
The minimal standards include information on the following characteristics: cell morphology; motility; pigmentation; the requirement for salt to prevent cell lysis; optimum NaCl and MgCl2 concentrations for growth and range of salt concentrations enabling growth; temperature and pH ranges for growth.

TLDR
Two novel halophilic archaebacterial bacteriophages, HF1 and HF2, were isolated from an Australian solar saltern and DNA-DNA hybridization data showed the two phages to be closely related.
