General Information: Thermophilic methanogenic archaeon. This organism has been found at Guaymas hot vents at a depth of 2000, at a depth of 1006 m on the Kolbeinsey Ridge north of Iceland and on hydrothermically heated black smoker walls at a depth of 3650 m at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. This methanogen grows chemolithoautotrophically at 80-110ºC in a hydrogen-carbon dioxide atmosphere.
