homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP
According to Yarza et al. (2013), an "orphan species with designated type strains that were either not deposited in culture collections or whose type strain is currently not available from a recognized culture collection. Not available in LMG, DSMZ or NBRC.".Publication:

Deposit DSM 41605, from which other culture collection deposits had been derived, turned out to be contaminated. In 2015 a replacement strain was provided by one of the authors, which obtained the number DSM 100163. There is currently no other source for obtaining S. thermoautotrophicus UBT1. — Nouioui I.

The phylogenetic position of this species was determined in a genome-scale analysis by Nouioui et al. (2018).Publication:

The deposits DSM 41605, LMG 19855, and NBRC 101056 are no longer available from these collections. — Yarza P. Personal communication, 2009-12-01.
