The MAG of this organism was recovered from environmental sequencing of samples from Tikitere, Rotorua, New Zealand. The binned genome totals 1,536,389 bp and has a G+C content of 51.3 %. The genome completeness is estimated at 99.0 %, with very low (0.49 %) contamination based on CheckM. Comprehensive phylogenomic analysis of 120 archaeal marker genes places this taxon in the proposed candidate genus, Terraquivivens, in the proposed candidate family Wolframiiraptoraceae. ANI values between this taxon and other members of the genus fall well below species delineation guidelines (76-78 %), and along with geographic isolation of this taxon from close relatives, delineation as a novel species is supported. Along with the tungstate (Tup) ABC transporter subunits, the molybdate transporter (modABC) and an additional putative wtpA/modA-like gene, homologous to modA-like sequences in Pyrobaculum species, suggest versatility in uptake of either molybdate or tungstate by this species. Two gene fragments encoding 4-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydratase (abfD) together, have been identified from the genome, indicating potential autotrophic CO2 fixation through the oxygen-tolerant hydroxypropionate/hydroxybutyrate (HP/HB) cycle, while no other members of the family were found to possess these genes.
