Abstract

A starch-hydrolysing and extremely halophilic archaeon (strain BD-3), isolated from Aibi salt lake in Xin-Jiang, China, was characterized phenotypically and genotypically in order to determine its taxonomic status. On the basis of its polar lipid composition, nucleotide sequences of its 16S rRNA genes, genomic DNA G+C content (62.4 mol%) and growth characteristics, the organism could be assigned to the genus . Phenotypic differences and low DNA–DNA hybridization values to related species distinguished strain BD-3 from recognized species. It is therefore concluded that strain BD-3 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BD-3 (=CGMCC 1.5335=JCM 13557).
