Abstract

The hyperthermophilic crenarchaeon V24Sta was originally classified before sequence-based phylogenetic analysis became standard for bacterial taxonomy. Subsequent phylogenetic analyses by various groups have shown that strain V24Sta groups more closely with strains of the genus than with those in the genus . Based on phylogenetic comparison of rRNA gene sequences and ribosomal proteins, we propose that strain V24Sta be reclassified as comb. nov., with the type strain V24Sta ( = DSM 2338 = JCM 9278). An emended description of the genus is also presented.
