Impact statement: Methane oxidizing microbes play a key role in reducing the emission of this potent greenhouse gas to the atmosphere. The known versatility of the recently discovered anaerobic Methylomirabilota methanotrophs is limited. Here, we report a novel uncultured Methylomirabilis species, Candidatus Methylomirabilis iodofontis, with the genetic potential of iodate respiration from biofilm in iodine‐rich cavern spring water. Star‐like cells resembling Methylomirabilis oxyfera were directly observed from the biofilm and a high‐quality metagenome‐assembled genome (MAG) of Ca. M. iodofontis was assembled. In addition to oxygenic denitrification and aerobic methane oxidation pathways, the M. iodofontis MAG also indicated its iodatereducing potential, a capability that would enable the bacterium to use iodate other than nitrite as an electron acceptor, a hitherto unrecognized metabolic potential of Methylomirabilota methanotrophs. The results advance the current understanding of the ecophysiology of anaerobic Methylomirabilota methanotrophs and may suggest an additional methane sink, especially in iodate‐rich ecosystems.
