Sulfurifustis variabilis and Sulfuricaulis limicola are autotrophic sulfur-oxidizing bacteria belonging to the family Acidiferrobacteraceae in the order Acidiferrobacterales. The type strains of these species, strain skN76(T) and strain HA5(T), were isolated from lakes in Japan. Here we describe the complete genome sequences of Sulfurifustis variabilis skN76(T) and Sulfuricaulis limicola HA5(T). The genome of Sulfurifustis variabilis skN76(T) consists of one circular chromosome with size of 4.0 Mbp including 3864 protein-coding sequences. The genome of Sulfuricaulis limicola HA5(T) is 2.9 Mbp chromosome with 2763 protein-coding sequences. In both genomes, 46 transfer RNA-coding genes and one ribosomal RNA operon were identified. In the genomes, redundancies of the genes involved in sulfur oxidation and inorganic carbon fixation pathways were observed. This is the first report to show the complete genome sequences of bacteria belonging to the order Acidiferrobacterales in the class Gammaproteobacteria.
