Abstract

An extremely halophilic red archaebacterium isolated from the Dead Sea (Ginzburg et al., J. Gen. Physiol. 55:187-207, 1970) belongs to the genus and differs sufficiently from the previously described species of the genus to be designated a new species; we propose the name (Volcani) sp. nov., nom. rev. because of the close resemblance of this organism to “,” which was first described by Volcani in 1940. The type strain is strain ATCC 43049.
