Twenty-two strains of extremely halophilic cocci (i.e., cocci requiring at least 15% NaCl for growth), so far considered as belonging to species of the genus Micrococcus Cohn or Sarcina Goodsir, were subjected to a taxonomic analysis. As a result of this study, it is recommended that they be assigned to the genus Halococcus Schoop, 1935. Amended descriptions of the genus and its single species, H. morrhuae (Farlow 1880) comb. nov., are given. CCM 537 (ATCC 17082, NCMB 787) is designated as the neotype strain of H. morrhuae.
