ther.mo.au.to.tro’phi.cus. Gr. masc. adj.thermos, hot; Gr. masc. pron.autos, self; Gr. adj. throphikos, nursing, tending or feeding; N.L. masc. adj.thermoautotrophicus, heat-loving self-nourishing, referring to the ability to grow at high temperature at the expense of CO or H2 plus CO2
The phylogenomic assignment score of this taxon is -0.00878 (N = 2).
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 deposits DSM 41605, LMG 19855, and NBRC 101056 are no longer available from these collections. — Yarza P. Personal communication, 2009-12-01.
