Thermocrinis jamiesonii Dodsworth et al. 2015, sp. nov.
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) GBS1=JCM 19133=DSM 27162.
Sequence accession no. (whole genome shotgun sequencing project) for the type strain: NZ_JNIE00000000.

Thermocrinis ruber Huber et al. 1999, sp. nov. (Type species of the genus.)
Type strain: (see also StrainInfo.net) OC 1/4 = DSM 12173.
Sequence accession no. (16S rRNA gene) for the type strain: AJ005640.
Etymology: L. masc. adj. ruber, red, referring to the cell color.
Valid publication: Validation List no. 69. Int. J. Syst. Bacteriol., 1999, 49, 341-342.
Effective publication: HUBER (R.), EDER (W.), HELDWEIN (S.), WANNER (G.), HUBER (H.), RACHEL (R.) and STETTER (K.O.): Thermocrinis ruber gen. nov., sp. nov., a pink-filament-forming hyperthermophilic bacterium isolated from Yellowstone National Park. Appl. Environ. Microbiol., 1998, 64, 3576-3583.

Note: Although the depositors have confirmed that the DSMZ had the correct strain, the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the type strain held in the DSMZ (strain DSM 12173) is not identical with the sequence which is attributed to the type strain (sequence AJ005640).
