General Information: This strain is the type strain for this species, and was isolated from a solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) field. Thermophilic archaea. This organism is a thermophilic, acidophilic, archaea that was isolated from acidic hydrothermal vents on the shore of Aeolian Island of Vulcano, Italy. Growth of this facultative aerobe occurs at temperatures of 33-67°C with optimal at 60°C and pH of 1.0-4.0 (optimal 2.0).
