Definitons

Acidophiles
This group includes both “true” acidophiles or acidophiles proper, as well as hyperacidotolerant, near-acidophilic neutriphiles.

“True” Acidophiles: This group includes organisms capable of thriving in hyperacidic conditions, most of which have an optimal growth pH of 5 or lower (OGpH<5)

Hyperacidotolerant, near-acidophilic neutriphiles: This group includes organisms that have an OGpH slightly above this (e.g., Nanoarchaeum equitans, OGpH=6) but can nonetheless be found flourishing in hyperacidic environments (pH=0.5-1.5).



Extremophilic Species


Overview
This group contains 2* extremophiles: Ca. N. koreensis and Ca. N. limnia. Both are acidophiles.
