Halomonas nitroreducens is a Gram-negative halophilic Proteobacteria, that is able to respire on nitrate and nitrite in anaerobiosis.

Halomonas nitroreducens's closest relatives are Halomonas alimentaria, H. denitrificans, H. organivorans, and H. ventosa. The proteobacteria was studied taxonomically from a strain taken from a solar saltern in Cáhuil, Pichilemu, Chile, by the University of Granada.
