Description of Halobacillus

The genus Halobacillus is clearly differentiated from other related genera in the cell-wall peptidoglycan type; members of the genus have peptidoglycan based on L-orn€“D-Asp, whereas other related genera contain meso-diaminopimelic acid or L-lysine at position 3 of the cell-wall peptidoglycan. The genus Halobacillus was proposed with two novel species, Halobacillus litoralis and Halobacillus trueperi, as well as Sporosarcina halophila, which was transferred to the genus as Halobacillus halophilus.
