Abstract

Ha.lo.plas.ma.ta’les. N.L. n. Haloplasma, type genus of the family; suff. -ales, ending denoting an order; N.L. fem. pl. n. Haloplasmatales, the Haloplasma order. The order Haloplasmatales was circumscribed on the basis of phylogenetic analyses of 16S rRNA gene sequences. The order currently includes only the family Haloplasmataceae and its single genus Haloplasma. It is composed of Gram-negative staining, wall-less, non-spore-forming, pleomorphic cells. Strictly anaerobic. Strictly organotrophic. Denitrifying and fermentative. MK-4 is the major respiratory quinone. Otherwise, the description of the order is the same as for the family Haloplasmataceae. Type genus: Haloplasma Antunes, Rainey, da Costa and Huber 2008a, 2476VP (Effective publication: Antunes, Rainey, Wanner, Taborda, Pätzold, Nobre, da Costa and Huber 2008b, 3586).
